A trucker’s life can be challenging. And sometimes, despite preparing for maintenance or emergencies, vehicle upgrade, daily check-up, and so on, a day may come that preparing is not enough. But what if we don’t have savings, and it’s time to consider a loan? Even then, a loan is not always the easiest thing. A lot goes into loan approvals, including credit score.
The Importance of a Good Credit Score
A high credit score means you have good habits of balancing and paying obligations on time. Earning positive creditworthiness will result in a favorable rate and repayment terms.
To ensure accuracy and prevent credit report issues, truckers should semi-regularly scrutinize their credit report. If there’s a flaw, report to the agency as soon as possible. Without a good credit score, you may find it hard to apply for a loan. Your eligibility to be extended credit can make or break your sustainability in the shipping and transportation industry.
