Hi Matt, I wouldn't anticipate any issues with changing your phone number. When you change your location from one town to another it can impact your local listings based on where people are searching. I'd consider those that associate the old number with your business, is there not a way to keep the same number?

In case of business number,it doesn't affect local listing profile.The main concern is that you will have to claim your business after updating new number and address. In case of address,it may lose rank for current location related keywords.

Changing the telephone number alone will not affect your sites ranking.
