Make more Business Profiles for a car dealership

Car dealerships can have multiple Business Profiles on Google.

  • All car dealerships can have a profile for the dealership itself and more profiles for their departments, like sale, parts, or services.
  • New-car dealerships can also have a profile for each brand of new cars sold.
  • Used-car dealerships can't have profiles per brand of cars sold. Used-car brands can change frequently.

Create a new profile

To add profiles for each brand of new cars sold, create a new profile. To add profiles for departments within a dealership, use the name of your dealership with the department name and create a new profile. Learn how to create a profile.
