Credit check for transferring from Virgin

Hi, quick question for a representative.  If we take up the offer to move our Virgin mobile accounts over to Optus, are Optus going to perform another credit check?  If so, I'd dearly love to not take additional hits on our credit rating if possible.

Hey @Caillin 

 

If you do decide to make the switch to Optus, we will perform an external credit check.

We also take your Virgin payment history into account. 

 

If you do have any other questions, let us know. Happy to try and make the switch as painless as possible.

It's not the results of the check that's concerning, just a simple check is a good hit to your credit rating.

 

Thanks for confirming that it will be hit though.  Will put off any potential transfer until the last second.
