history can often times be almost as difficult as getting a car

should be a list of all the bills you pay on a monthly basis
which are not reported to the credit agencies. Ask your landlord
for a letter of reference. Utility companies will also generally
provide you with payment histories. If you have any small
installment accounts at local retailers which don't report
credit, ask them for credit statements as well.
