    The business is listed with "I deliver goods and services to my customers at their locations" and without "I serve customers at my business address". What are my options to rank up the listing?

    Local citations are hard to find when I can't expose the address (the business operates from the owner's house).

    Thanks!

    If the owner has no problem listing address at citation sources then it doesn't matter whether you hide address or not.

    He's very strict about not using his home address in related to the business (I can't say nothing about it, he has 3 young ones).

    Post an ad looking for people in that city to get mail sent to them. You pay them for this.

    A Business will be registered with the city or state so if he is licensed the address information is public so he's trying to hide something that is not able to be hidden. I as a business owner myself understand you may not want your business to be visible but just like the phone book era most of us were listed and is not a security risk. But you could do as the above user said use someone you know or someone else's address if that is what had to come to agreement on it's best to stick with the real business address for there is information available like license etc that can't be updated to be incorrect but that is my take on the situation.

    The envelope already received and verified, the thing is the citation listings, I guess they need to be on the same address.
    Is there any other way to rank up in google business results without sharing the address?

    Thanks!

    you could find a shopping outlet that only shows google photo from distance and then ask a business owner in outlet if they want a few bucks if they could use their address for 'mailing' purposes

    No your going to need citation sources unless competition is very low, without sharing address or changing addresses it will never rank.
