Your Credit History & How It Applies to Your Auto Financing Journey

Not sure where your credit score lies? If you haven't seen or checked your credit score in the past two years, you can request a credit report from one of our listed reported agencies or credit bureaus. The same goes if you've never seen a credit report or want to monitor your credit.

When you see the credit report, make sure to check it carefully for accuracy and that no errors are causing further harm to your credit score. If there is a mistake, make sure you provide proof of the error to the entity that reported it and the credit reporting agency.

Taking Steps Toward Better Credit


Customers from Providence and the greater New England area may be wondering: How do I repair my credit score? Consider the following steps to get over the hump and make your next financing journey simpler and less stressful.

1. Pay Bills on Time

Late payments have a negative effect on your credit history and are reflected on the report.

2. Make At Least the Minimum Payment Each Month

A payment is better than none. If you've racked up a significant amount on your credit cards, pay at least some of what you owe by putting the minimum monthly payment forward, for starters.


3. Obtain a Source of Credit

Some New Bedford customers may not have a source of credit. You need to start somewhere. A credit card is one such credit source. If you don't have a credit card, get one and make the minimum payments to build a good credit history.

4. Don't Apply for More Credit Than You Require

Believe it or not, there is such a thing as too much credit. Each credit application appears on your credit report and can cause worry for potential creditors or lenders, who may worry you're about to take on additional debt. Just like you don't bite on more than you can chew, you shouldn't apply for more credit than what you're able to pay for.

5. Don't Ignore Your Debt Obligations

Work with your lender or credit agency and discuss a potential reduced payment plan if you're having difficulty making minimum payments. A credit counseling service may also be of assistance. Whatever you do, don't run away from your debt. Face it head on, so that Autoloan Credit Express can situate you with affordable financing on your next vehicle.
