The key to finding a business name by address is to know the city, state, and zip code as well as the correct name of the business. Finding a business name by address is straightforward and does not require you to utilize a paid database search. Search tools on the Internet provide different information when you are seeking a business name by address.

Step 1

Verify that you have the complete and correct address--city, state and zip code--before you try to find a company name by address. You do not want to expend energy on performing a search for a business name by address and discover you have the wrong address.

Step 2

If your purpose in finding a business name by address is to make a purchase or attend an appointment, there are specific search tools to assist with driving directions. For example, you can perform a search through Mapquest.com or Googlemaps.com to determine driving directions, how long it will take you to reach this destination as well as the name of the business.

Step 3

One easy way to find a business name by address is to simply enter the address, city, state and zip into the Google search form. If there is a business at that address, the name of the business will come up along with a description and website, if available. If there is more than one business located at an address, all of the business names will appear.

Step 4

There are many Internet tools you can use to find a business name by address. Before you perform the Internet search, know that they provide different information besides the business name. For those seeking just the business name, perform a reverse address search on 411.com, whitepages.com or switchboard.com.

Step 5

If you do not have the time to perform the search yourself, you can pay for searches by business addresses to be conducted through legalzoom.com. Make sure you define the parameters of the search before you agree to use a service of this nature.

Tips

  • Have patience because it may take more than one search in order to find a business name by address.
