It’s very hard to choose an essay writing service when there are so many different ones available online, but this review of freshesays.com should help you to make an informed decision.
Freshessays places the emphasis on creativity, and is all about using fresh ideas to create unique essays. Originality is at the top of the agenda, alongside creating an essay that fulfils all of the student’s needs and requirements.
The services available
Essays are available is a wide range of different subjects, and academic levels catered for begin at high school but go all the way up to PhD level. There are a wide range of other assignments available to order as well, not just essays, including biographies, presentations and business plans, so every student should be able to get what they need. In addition to custom writing services, editing and proofreading are available as an option for those that have already written their paper but just need a little bit of assistance to get it up to scratch.
There are a variety of different referencing formats available for selection, and it is possible to tell your writer how many sources you need them to use. You can also choose to have your paper written by one of their top writers for an additional charge, add to priority customer service, and other additional extras are available too.
Like many such sites, there is a 24/7 live chat option, so you can have any questions and queries answered almost immediately. Unfortunately though, it is also like other sites in that you are bombarded with questions as soon as you visit the webpage, so you can feel a little pressured into placing and order. There is also a free phone number that you can call to have any questions answered, which is fairly unusual, but very helpful.
You can put in a free quote and there is no need to pay anything at this stage, and they respond to clarify the details of your instructions before the order goes ahead and before you pay. The great thing about this is that they respond very quickly – within 5 or 10 minutes, generally.
Prices and Discounts
Prices are calculated depending on the type of assignment needed, the number of pages required, how soon the deadline is, and what academic level the essay must be at. Many sites charge no more for a PhD level essay than they do for a high school essay, but this one does, and this is reassuring because it suggests that higher level essays will be at the higher standard that is required.
There are also discounts applicable, and there are lifetime discounts available for loyalty (up to 15% off) as well as one-off discounts for expensive orders (up to 10% off).
If you are satisfied with the paper, you must first approve it and then it can be downloaded from the site. Your paper is not emailed directly to you, because you have to approve it first.
There are a number of free features that you can receive when you place your order. These are: free outline, free title page, bibliography formatting and revisions. This apparently saves the customer a total of $65, which is very good. However, some custom writing services offer some or all of these services for free as standard anyway, which is worth bearing in mind when you’re considering which is the best value.
Quality and Guarantee
Unlike other similar sites, there does not appear to be much information about the writers themselves. There is nothing about the selection process that they go through, monitoring of the quality of their work, or the qualifications that they must have. They described as “expert writers” and “certified writers”, although it is not clear what this really means. They are clear, however, on plagiarism, and all work goes through plagiarism checks before delivery to the customer. Plagiarism reports can also be added to your order for a small additional fee.
Helpfully, they also offer a money back guarantee, with you receiving all of your money back if the writer misses the deadline or if there’s a mistake in payment. If you cancel part way through, you can get 50-70% of your money back. If you’re not happy with the quality of the paper, free revisions are available, or you can open a dispute to request a refund. As with all such sites, however, it is worth remembering there is no guarantee you will be refunded.
