Paying off accounts in collections.
Hi. I plan on buying a car and ran my credit score and noticed i had 2 auto insurance companies send old accounts into collections. I am gonna pay them off and am wondering who would be better paying off too - the auto insurance company or the credit collection agency? Also how long after I pay do they take to come off report? Only negative thing on my report was those two accounts. Thank you.
