Tradelines for credit repair.

Are there tradelines for credit repair? If so, who has them? Well, we need to unpack this term and separate it into two sperate concepts. We will explain both, below. We’ll also show you how to repair your credit and add tradelines, correctly.

Definition of tradelines for credit repair.

Just so we’re on the same page, let’s define the two terms under review.


Tradelines are the accounts on your credit report, but the term has also come to mean “adding authorized user accounts in order to improve credit scores.”

Credit repair.

Repairing your credit is much more straight forward. Credit repair means the systematic legal challenges of outdated, inaccurate or misleading information in your credit report for the purpose of removing or correcting those issues.

In short: “Tradelines” = add positive items to credit reports. “Credit repair” = remove negative items from your credit reports. Both typically improve credit scores. Although, tradelines are much faster at increasing credit scores.

With the definitions above, you can see that the term is actually two terms shoved together. Here’s what you need to know:

Together, this means that you do not add tradelines in order to replace or skip over credit repair. One does not replace the other. They can both be done, but you need to do them in the right order. Here’s a quick video as a guide:

In addition, you need to make sure you’re working with a legitimate company for each.


You should contact us for a free credit report analysis. If you want tradelines, that’s what we do and we do it well. However, we will not sell tradelines if you need credit repair first. We know that if you add tradelines when you actually needed credit repair, the tradelines aren’t going to work and you’re going to be an unhappy camper.

This is why we perform a free credit report analysis. If you’re not ready, we recommend a credit repair service provider who we have worked with for nearly a decade and who has performed credit repair since 1993. Not a typo… 1993.

Once you’re repaired, we are standing by to help you with tradelines. That’s when the significant score increases are realized.

  1. I’m confused. Are you governed under the Credit Repair Organizations Act? I’m just trying to understand the differences between a credit repair company and what a tradeline company does.

    1. Hey Mark,

      This is not an evasion to your question, but… your question is WAY more complicated than it appears. Federal judges have a hard time determining who is and is not a credit repair organization subject to the credit repair organizations act. However, we joke here that our dog is a credit repair organization, because the definition is so wide, it subsumes everything under the sun (presumably, even us). Recently, an auto dealer was found to be a credit repair organization. Also, the credit bureaus themselves (as insanely ironic is that might be) were found to be a credit repair organization).

      We comply with both the CROA and it’s State’s (Florida’s) counterpart.

      The difference between credit repair and tradelines? Credit repair = remove negative items. Tradelines = add positive items.

      Hope that was helpful. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
