There are lots of custom writing companies out there, but choosing the one that can deliver high-quality papers can be a real challenge. Your hard-earned money should be going towards creative and informative content that gets you better grades.
College should be a time for fun and excitement. But students quickly discover that their essays and other assignments make it impossible for them to ever find time to catch a movie or meet up with friends. Fortunately, custom writing services help students overcome these obstacles and allow them to maintain their grades while finding more time to enjoy themselves. With so much riding on their term papers and projects, they need to be able to trust the writing company to deliver. However, this is easier said than done. In many cases, customers have issues with plagiarism, receiving the paper late, or receiving an order that does not come close to following their directions. Given these issues, what is a student to do? Our review website provides you with solutions. We are dedicated to reviewing all of the major academic writing companies with a focus on their pricing policies, discounts, the quality of our order, and the professionalism of the customer support department. There really are affordable, high quality services out there with great guarantees and friendly support agents; it is just a matter of finding them. That is exactly what we strive to do.
For this review, we took a look at BoomEssays.com. Our first impression is that while we like the website’s color scheme and graphics, we found that the landing page contained way too much information and the font was too small. That said, they do offer a full selection of writing services including every type of essay, projects, speeches, PowerPoint presentations, and even dissertations.
As we do whenever we order a paper, we requested a high school-level US History paper. It needed to be 5 pages long (double-spaced) and we gave the writer a 7-day deadline. We also asked for APA formatting, 4 sources, and requested an American-based writer. Read further to find out what we uncovered.
Prices, Discounts, Payments
Prices start at $12.99/page for a high school-level paper with a 14-day deadline. This is on par with the industry average. As is the case with all companies, the price is based on several factors including the page length, deadline, type of assignment and academic level. They provide several features for free, such as a title page, reference page, outline, formatting, revisions and plagiarism report. The default currency is in US Dollars, but you can also pay in British Pounds, Euros, Canadian Dollars and Australian Dollars. These are convenient options that not every company offers. If you are concerned about payment security, you will be happy to know that BoomEssays.com offers safe and convenient methods such as Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover and even PayPal.
This company offers a couple of discount programs. For instance, they provide a first-time discount of 15% if you are a new customer. They also have loyalty discount programs for long-term customers that range from 5% all the way up to 15% depending on the total number of pages you order.
Our initial price was $82.75, but after applying our 15% discount, we paid a reasonable $70.34. They also offer a few additional features for an extra fee such as an “Originality” report (which we take to mean a plagiarism report), proofreading, and a 1-page summary.
Quality of Papers
The fact that the website itself is riddled with grammar mistakes should be a red flag, and sure enough, the English in our paper was not any better. We definitely did not receive an American writer and they certainly were not qualified to write it. The paper had structural issues and some of the observations were flat-out incorrect. A high-school paper about the Civil War should not have been particularly difficult, but the writer really struggled. Frankly, we are not sure if this would have gotten us a C. The fact that it arrived by the deadline and contained no plagiarism hardly matters if the quality is poor.
The customer support team is available 24/7 and can be reached via email, phone and live chat. We tested out their availability and can confirm that their response times are quick. They are also knowledgeable and professional. When we requested a refund, we had to jump through some hoops, but that was to be expected. They tried to convince us to accept free revisions, but we insisted that it would not be enough to redeem the paper. It was not until we threatened to take the issue up with our credit card company that they relented and gave us our refund.
Based on our experience, there just is not a whole lot of positive things to say about BoomEssays.com. Aside from affordable prices and receiving our paper by the deadline, nothing else truly went right. A typical high schooler would have done a better job than what our “professional” put together. We do not recommend this company.
