TransUnion has finally made its push onto the D+H Expert platform and alongside rival Equifax, although brokers won’t be able to shoot off its credit reports to lenders until early next month.

    I dealt with Transunion on my own bureau last year regarding a U.S. purchase. What a mess. I I had to confirm info online about recent transactions and all the information they had was incorrect. I asked them to mail a copy of my report. After 6 weeks and still no report I contacted them to find out they sent my report to the same street and number but to a city about 75 miles from where I live. They informed me this was the address on my file. Now how could you mess that one up so bad after confirming over the phone personal details. It took me another 2 weeks to get the correct information from them to get the report straightened out after trying to speak with a number of their reps who barely spoke English, were rude and did not seem to understnd their job. My report is now correct after 4 months of working with them.
    Stick to Equifax. Their reporting is correct and their people professional and very helpful. if you start using Transunion you may find a lot of mistakes on client's reports that will result in unnecessary turndowns from the lenders. The information for both companies all come from the same sources so why so may mistakes on Transunion reports.

    We have been using Trans Union here for over two years, they have saved us dozens of deals. While Equifax is months, maybe years behind in updating files, we have found transUnion way mor up to date, especially when it come to reporting the good on a credit report. As well, we can get a clients report fixed within 48 hour with Trans Union...Equifax...we stopped trying.
