  1. My business has been registered with the state at least 3 months. I hope that helps me out with these applications. I can definitely give Bank of America a try along with the other two.
  2. I have an investor who is going to use his good credit to help me get my first semi! I am beyond excited. From what I have put together from the business Chase and Amex products are a good place to start. Chase requires a face to face setup but Amex can be done online. NFCU is a very good one but you have to be a member and my investor is not. I know there are probably others but these seem to be championed the most, I think. Am I on the right track? Am I missing some cards that would work well with this group?
  3. Yes I did with Uline and Gemplers. I checked and the one tradeline is reporting paid as agreed. My orders were placed using terms as payment. Not sure how to see my paydex. I have the pdf of the tradeline but I didn't see a score anywhere. Gemplers isn't really a starter account. As I mentioned usually Uline declines when they see something they don't like or the order is large. You won't have a score with one trade! AND THE PAYDEX SCORE MEANS NOTHING! Sorry we have repeated this a million times here. LOL Things have definitely changed since I did this years ago when the board first started. Trying to update myself and get back on track. I appreciate the help always.

  5. Yes, I know it can take some time. Sounds like I need to wait it out and try again in a few weeks. I thought Gemplers approved without dnb listings. Thanks!
  6. I just checked and have one reporting and I have proper filings with the state.
  7. They both want me to pay for the orders I placed asking for terms. I had just placed orders with quill and amsterdam and paid early. I did all of then 411 stuff, I followed the steps laid out in the group for starting a business profile, and I figured after 3 weeks, those two accounts should have reported by now. Also, what is being compliant mean?
  8. I am starting out building business credit for my trucking company. I got and paid on time amsterdam and quill. I waited and then applied for gemplers and uline and they turned me down for terms due to DNB. Any ideas what I should do from here?
  9. I am so late to the game on this one! Is there any way that they are still accepting clients Kristofsmom?
  10. Taking notes and screenshots of all of this invaluable information! I knew my neighbor wasn't correct but I got lost in the sea of google results lol. I'm definitely going to join OOIDA. I have heard about the boards but until I get that seasoning on my number, what you do guys think about leasing out the number to more seasoned operators to drive under?
  11. That is great BRBiz! Welp I don't have cash, credit, or collateral right now nor can I borrow someone else's as a recent divorcee. I'm definitely going to be climbing every mountain on this one.
  12. Thanks. Ryder is okay. I used to drive for a company who leased trucks from them as well as Penske. Have you checked Amerilease and Lone Mountain Truck Lease as well? I'm not ready to purchase/lease any more trucks at the moment but I am planning to get a refrigerated trailer around March 2017. I'd like to be prepared for produce season in the south east next Spring. Not quite yet. Just starting out and I want to make sure I don't make the same mistakes a neighbor of mine did. Was bringing in 20k/mth with one truck but got a 2000 truck with a ton of problems and within a year folded. He also told me that the truckers insurance has to be through Progressive because they are the only company who would insure new trucking companies and charge about 20k per year. Is this true? Do you need 3 years with Progressive in order to be insured with other companies as a new business in trucking?
  13. Some of us don't have a PG to give, lol. This thread is invaluable to say the least. It helps me set a roadmap to where I need to set my sights as I am building my biz the hard way.
