Over extending credi for necessities

Okay, here's the problem: I have alot of personal credit loans ie; home, autos, credit cards (few), ect.

We need a few more accounts with local rental places and such to streamline the operations, but they all want to extend more credit!, I just want to put my company credit card up as a deposit status, not more credit.

Anyone had this problem and, if so, what did you do?

this is easy: take one of your tools and chop, cut or beat to death all your credit cards...

These places are probably getting a better deal by pushing their own credit vs. accepting regular credit cards...that's why they want you to open an just tell them "No thank you" and use your credit card.

just ask for a super small limit (500 bucks should cover most single day rentals) and pay it off at the end of every month.that way, you dont have mucho credit on the credit report and, its just like cash since its paid in full every month.
