Companies who talk about "customer service" and then fail to deliver anything approaching that....

Businesses, etc on Google maps that are incorrectly located.

 

 

Have you ever tried updating that information? Intergen Auckland moved premises in January 2016. I updated the information in Google Business end of December 2015 and they still list the old address in some searches (while in others they list the new address). We had people calling the office complaining they drove to the wrong location. Nothing one can do about it.

Use of "premise" as the singular of "premises".

 

Use of "earthquake prone building".

 

 

Earthquake prone building = every building that resides on a tectonic plate!

We were staying in a small village in France earlier this year and the markers for the local bakery, butcher and tabac were way out of whack. I went online to try and correct them - just for fun and to see how it worked. Had to wait a week or 10 days, I think for the corrections to be vetted, but the changes eventually came up.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Our company although showed correctly on the map said we were closed forever. Requesting an update for the info including all out opening hours and it was fixed after 3 days so was pretty happy with that.

"Earthquake prone building" should really be "Earthquake damage-prone building". Otherwise it sounds as though the building can have its own earthquake.

I just searched "Intergen Auckland" and it showed the old address and a map with the pin in the wrong place. And I have updated this December 2015 and checked every few months since then. Never got it updated correctly. If I search "Intergen Auckland Fanshawe St" then it shows the correct address and map.

 

I guess they never removed the old entry from the index and still give priority to it.

I asked google how long to get to intergen and it told me 31 mins by SH1, which it wouldnt to the takapuna location. The takapuna one isnt a google place that someone has claimed as it cant have edits suggested or hours showing etc, its something else.

I did a few years ago. I needed to find a BP petrol station in Rotorua (as it was one of the possible places that my partner had lost her camera) and its location was completely wrong on the map.

 

I tried jumping through the hoops of reporting the correct location but gave up in the end. I don't have a google account and it wouldn't accept my changes without one. Not sure what the process is like now, but I have noticed the odd business here and there is wrong.

Obsolescence is becoming more and more of a nuisance across the world-wide-web as time goes on.

 

Very frustrating when reading an article or review that doesn’t have a date on it so you don’t know if it’s current, accurate or still valid/correct.

The small insects that live in grass and, if I ever make the error of walking outside in bare feet at a certain time in the evening, leap onto my feet and cover them in red itchy bites within moments.

You can't always do this.

 

Our postal address is a PO Box. Our business, obviously, does not live in the PO Box.

 

Google cannot get their heads around the fact that it might not be possible to "verify" the address of our office by mailing us a card to our office because it won't get delivered, because no post gets delivered to that address...!

Everyplace I have worked at with no letterbox/postal delivery has had things go to the PO Box when sent to the street address. At no cost too which really P****S me off since nzpost want money to do that for mail addressed to my house. Even asked if I took the mailbox down what would happen and they said they would hold it and deliver a notice to install a letterbox which I find bizzare.

I think it's a legal requirement that a residential property has a letterbox ???
