Overall Rating: 8.7 / 10 (Excellent)

Nav.com is a free resource for business owners looking to obtain financing effortlessly, while managing and building credit. Both their website and mobile app offer easy-to-read personal and business credit reports and 24/7 monitoring, with useful self-serve tools that help users contest credit scores with a single click, develop and launch business concepts, and set up simple tasks to help improve their business credit scores. Owners of small and medium-sized enterprises will find Nav's free service an excellent tool to gain a better understanding of their credit profile and increase their chances of obtaining financing, while those running larger operations or looking to qualify for loans will surely benefit from their reasonably-priced Essential and Premium plans.

Credit Score & Reports

Credit Score & Reports - 9 / 10

Nav offers a free Standard plan that includes a personal credit score, a summary VantageScore 3.0 Credit Report, and letter grades from two unstated bureaus. The Essential plan contains an Experian and TransUnion Vantage Score 3.0 Personal Report as well as letter grades from two bureaus, again unstated. Out of all their plans, however, Nav's Premium Package offers the best features, including a personal VantageScore 3.0 score, business credit scores from two bureaus, and detailed VantageScore 3.0 credit reports. Potential customers, especially small business owners, will find Nav's summary reports useful when attempting to determine whether or not they will eligible for credit or financing, yet they should remember that the company only provides credit report summaries and VantageScore estimates, which will likely differ from the scores used by lenders when making credit decisions.

Monitoring & Tools

Monitoring & Tools - 9 / 10

Nav's paid plans offer credit monitoring with email alerts for up to 90 types of changes to your credit, identity recovery services, up to $1 million in identity theft protection, live customer support, and insight into the underlying factors possibly affecting your credit. The company also provides a business credit package with tools that offer guidance for building credit, scan reports for errors, provide dispute assistance, and track overall financial progress by setting attainable goals. Nav volunteers limited details about their plans and skims over their most relevant features, for which reason potential customers may want to consider enrolling in the free Standard plan to get a feel for what their services entail before transitioning to a paid plan.

Free credit reports and scores for my business and tools to build business credit. It really is free. You can pay if you want to get all the details in your reports. A financing marketplace is part of their site and it sorts through your options and shows your approval chances before you apply.

$29 for full business and personal reports is all that needs to be said. D&B charges $50 for one report.
