Ultius is a professional writing service available online as of 2010, and our research shows that they are based in Las Vegas, Nevada. The review of Ultius will be made just as we do with all others, and will take into consideration a few different aspects, including testimonials, samples, content, comments from customers, customer support, and our own experience as customers.
Available Services and Features
Ultius.com lists its services and products on their page. Among them, you can find academic writing for high school, as well as higher education at undergraduate level and postgraduate level (Master’s and Ph.D.). These services include: cover letters, admissions essays, editing, resumes, but also business writing such as proposals and plans. Ultius says that their writers are American, but not much more. They claim they have been vetted and screened in order to make sure they have the best people available.
As far as customer service goes, you can contact them through 24/7 live chat, email, or phone. However, when we tried calling multiple times in one day, the staff wasn’t available at any of the times and we were instructed to leave our number and name. While we did receive a call back, the staff wasn’t able to give us all the information we needed. A specialist was supposed to return our call, but never did.
A positive aspect is that samples are available on the blog and website, including information about them. Their policies, however, are tricky to locate. You need to access the site map. Ultius is a trustworthy company with a legitimate practice, and we are comfortable saying that Ultius.com is not fraud or scam.
Prices and Discounts
Ultius.com has prices that are not really in line with the average because they are higher than most in the industry. A high school essay will set you back at least $18 per page, with a delivery time of 20 days. A similar paper will cost you $178 for a Ph.D. level, at 8 pages. Discounts do not appear to be available, and they don’t have any promo code. Coupon codes may be awarded, but that is the task of customer service, so you won’t find them anywhere online.
Information on security
We were able to determine that Ultius.com is a safe website and that your personal and financial information will be safe. We weren’t uncomfortable offering up our information, as it is not probable that the website sells this information to third parties. The site is also encrypted.
Writers and Delivery
The writers are said to have graduated from accredited universities, but of course, the real test is the work they provide. The papers and projects they are assigned are supposed to be in line with their degree of education. When we looked at customer reviews, we found them to be mixed. While some testimonials claimed that the writing was too basic, many reviews state that the quality is good. Overall, the rating seems to be decent enough for a company of its kind, although they could improve their writing style.
In line with other professional writing services of its kind, Ultius does provide a few free services, like bibliographies, title pages or plagiarism checks. This definitely enhances the overall quality of the service, as it provides an extra incentive for customers to spend the money on the papers provided by the Ultius.com team.
In conclusion, Ultius.com is a good service that attracts generally good customer reviews, thanks to its relatively good quality and the fact that it meets the customer needs. Something to watch out for is the fact that their writers may not all be native English speakers, despite their claim.
