    Supply house credit accounts

    What kind of credit score do HVAC suppliers look for to get credit accounts. I have a 643 credit score which is not that great but it keeps getting better. I am trying to start a little business and have been lucky to keep enough cash flow. With bigger jobs coming my way I need to get some credit accounts. Just wondering if anyone knows how hard it is to get credit accounts. Any information would be awesome!

    Fill out the credit apps. They will normally give you a $1000 credit account, no matter what your credit score. Pay it on time every month, then ask for a credit increase.

    Ahyup !! That's exactly how it works. It called building a credit line.

    My advice is to not wait until you get a big job, start an account asap. Also, find a line of equipment that you like to sell and stick with it. Don't go shopping around and sell a Carrier this week and a Lennox next week.
