Priding itself on over two decades in the custom writing industry, I had high hopes for Best Essays. With their mission to alleviate you from the stresses of student life, BestEssays claims to be one of the leading custom writing services, allowing professional writers to take care of your work. However, not all is as it seems.

My first impressions of the website were average. The site sports a relatively bold color scheme and a lot of fancy graphics. Whilst scrolling down pages, especially the homepage, some of these animations can bug or take a while to load, meaning you have to wait before reading the content. On the plus side, there are all the pages you would expect this kind of website to have, including an accessible order form on the homepage. However, there is no testimonials page.
Referring the services page, you’ll notice an extensive list of available services to choose from. This list includes all the major assignment types you would expect a website like this to handle, as well as a few niche documents. However, not all the assignment types are covered and you may find you have to take your business elsewhere if the company cannot complete it for you.
Using the order form on the homepage, I received a quote for a ten-page essay (only 2,750 words) with a 48-hour deadline which resulted in the website quoting me a staggering $359. That make this site one of the most expensive writing services, although, there is a 15% discount for new users. However, this is the price before you add elements such as proofreading, editorial editing and a list of sources, which only increases the price.
As a site that has been operating for over twenty years, you would expect the site to have some sort of review or testimonials page. This leads me to highly doubt the trustworthiness and credibility of the website. After searching online, my doubts were clarified. There were reports of extremely plagiarized work that would in no way have passed a simply copy check test. There were also reports of poorly written content and assignments that were obviously not written by a native English speaker.
Unlike most of the poor custom writing service websites, BestEssays.com boasts a range of contact services that even supports international customers around the world. There is a variety of toll-free numbers, email addresses and even live chat and dedicated email transfers.
Mary Walton‘s conclusion on BestEssays.com:
Despite the fantastic number of contact methods and international support, nothing can make up for the truly awful reports of the quality of the content. With adjustments to this aspect of the business, alongside a reduction in prices, this may be one of the leading websites. In the meantime, before these changes happen, students are much better off taking their writing assignments to one of the more reputable companies.
