Active Appliances Is Now Listed In Google Business Photos

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Panoramic images of Active Appliances Inc. headquarters in Los Angeles, California can be viewed at

Google Business Photos inside Google Maps Street View gives huge benefits to consumers that include:

1) Ability to size up the company: many people search for an appliance repair company but in the past were not able to evaluate the size, credentials, and legitimacy of the company they are calling. Many one man operations will pretend to be a large company and deceive consumers by lying on the phone. Google Business Photos brings the truth to consumers.

2) Differentiate truly local businesses from mail box addresses. Many companies located far away would rent mail boxes at local cities and pretend to have a local location. This causes a lot of confusion among consumers. Consumers are trying to find a local appliance repair company so a technician will come to fix the appliance quickly instead of waiting for hours for a non-local company to send their representative.

3) Seeing photos of people who answer the phone at the desk. People often call companies and don't know if they are talking with an outsourced answering service or if there are really local people answering the call. Seeing photos inside Google Maps of local customer service people in the office picking up the phone adds trust to the company in the eyes of consumers.

An Active Appliances Inc. representative had this to say about Google Business Photos: "We want to express our deep appreciation to the team of engineers at Google for creating an amazing consumer experience with Google Business Photos and created tools for local businesses like Active Appliances Inc."
