Location Maps – Your Questions Answered

Price list, quotation and discounts

Please call us or fill in our enquiry form with your details and we will send you our price list and relevant examples. We will endeavour to reply to every enquiry within one hour.

When you request an enquiry, we will search our archive for location maps we have designed near you or for similar types of town maps, area maps or site plans.

Should any of the examples we sent you be adaptable we will be happy to offer you a discount of up to 50%.

For some of our products like site plans, floor plans or 3D drawings, we may require further information before we can give you a quotation as the level of detail in each of these products can vary greatly.

We will liaise with you to make the process of ordering your map as efficient and simple as possible. We are here to offer advice and answer any questions you may have.

What do I need to supply?

We will need a signed copy of our quotation and/or your official purchase order by email or by fax before we start any work.

To design a location map, we also need your logo (preferably as an EPS file for best quality and lower PDF file size or a good resolution JPEG file). If you can supply your a corporate identity guide we can create a map re-use your preferred layout, colours and fonts.

If you have a photo of your building this can be very helpful especially for large business parks and industrial estates.


Business Maps is licensed to use a number of cartographic data sources and will always endeavour to use copyright free information so you can reuse the map time an again in limitless quantities without incurring any additional cost.

You will not be directly liable for third party copyrights as the map will be produced under our responsibility.

Whenever there are copyrights involved we will endeavour to make it as simple and hassle free as possible and use the most economical sources for each type of map.


It only takes a couple of days to crate a new A4 location map or a day for a locator map but should you need a map urgently we can usually turnaround a location map within 24 hours and a locator map within a few hours. For these urgent deadlines a surcharge may apply as we will have to reshuffle our planning to fit your job in.

For large orders of hundreds of maps we will establish a delivery schedule over several weeks and deliver the maps in batches so they can be distributed within your organisation for checks and amendments.

When you inform us of amendments to a proof a new version of your map is usually sent the same day.

Proofing process

The proofing process will be via email using PDF files to ensure prompt turnaround and easy distribution of the proofs to your colleagues whose input may be required.

Our expert cartographers have experience in designing thousands of maps and will be ready to design the first proof of your map and write travel directions.

Your input before we start work on your map can be valuable when there have been recent changes to the road network or when traffic restrictions apply in your area. If your premises are on a business park or industrial estate, do not hesitate to send us a document showing its layout in order to make your immediate surroundings as precise as possible.

When you receive proofs, we invite you to tell us about any changes you would like to make to the map, colours, landmarks, traffic lights, one-way systems etc. We will incorporate the changes and email you new proofs until you are 100% satisfied with your map although it usually takes no more that two or three stages to complete a new map.

We expect new proofs to be returned with amendments or signed off within 10 working days.

Once the map is signed-off , we will send you all the required files by email.

Updates and amendments

If your map needs any updating within 3 years of purchase we will carry out amendments free of charge as part of our 3-year free update guarantee. A nominal charge may apply for logo or company detail changes that are unrelated to the map itself or travel directions.

If you move to a new address within the perimeter of the existing location map, a discount of 50% or more will apply for your new map.

Quantity discounts

Volume discounts will apply for orders of 5 maps or more. For smaller orders we will check each map address to let you know the best discount we can offer you.

International maps

We have designed hundreds of international location maps and the design process is usually similar to UK maps although we may require longer timescales should we need to sources new mapping data.

For locations in newly built business or industrial parks or in fast developing cities, we may require information to be provided by your local office as it is often not commercially available for several years after these developments have taken place.
