Understand the Google Guarantee

The Google Guarantee protects you when you hire a Google Guaranteed business. You will see the Google Guarantee iconon Google surfaces next to covered providers. Use the contact options including Call and Send request, schedule a booking, or dial the number that appears in the listing to contact the business.

When you use audio search (such as Google Assistant or Google Home) to find a service, you will hear confirmation that the business is Google Guaranteed. When you call the business from your device, you’re protected by the Google Guarantee.

Services must be booked through Google Local Services. If you contact the business in any other way (such as another phone number or their website or directly from one of our partner affiliates websites) you are not protected by the Google Guarantee.

If you're a provider, you can apply to get the Google Guarantee by signing up for Local Services Ads.
