We have been in business for a while and we wanted to open up a business account with our bank so we were told to get a DBA with the town then we opened our account up. We have had two truck loans with the bank and paid off early. But before that we got credit from Lesco and our local mulch company without a problem. We also got a Getty gas card for the business so every bit helps. We are a very small landscaping company- two men. Sears usually gives a credit card with just a smile try that too to establish credit. Also, can't phone bills be used as credit too. I think some times they make it harder than it has to be! Good luck.
