We are not certain how long GrabMyEssay has been in the writing service business, but it is at least several years. A number of our site users have used and commented on the company, so we decided to go ahead with a full GrabMyEssay review. We have looked at the academic writing products and services offered, all of the content on the company website, reviewed sample academic papers, contacted customer support with questions, looked at customer reviews of the custom writing they received, and checked out prices, benefits, policies, and guarantees. Our review should help you decide if this writing service is the one for your essay and paper writing needs.
If you are looking for a custom writing company that offers a full array of academic writing, then you need to read our comprehensive GrabMyEssay review. Here are the most common types of paper and essay writing and other products and services offered:
- Research paper
- Essay writing of any type
- Book/movie reviews
- Problem-solving questions
- Lab reports
- Case studies
- Thesis and dissertation in whole or part
- Term paper
- Other high school and college papers
- Admissions essays

In short, just like the song, “You Can Get Anything at Alice’s Restaurant,” you can get anything you might need here.
Prices and Discounts
GrabMyEssay prices for all types of custom writing products and services are average for the writing industry. They begin at $14.99/page for a high school essay with a long deadline to $56.09/page for Ph.D. level work with an urgent deadline. There are different pricing structures for admissions essays, test-taking, editing, and other types of products or services.
There is a structured discount program. New customers get a 15% discount on their first order. Loyal customers are granted discounts ranging from 5 – 15%. There are also special discounts throughout the year, based upon holidays or other events.
Offers and Extra Services
The typical freebies are offered – title and bibliography pages, outline, formatting, and plagiarism report.
Extra fee-based services can be added during the ordering process – getting a preferred or higher level writer, a plagiarism report, proofreading, a one-page summary, a draft, or advanced customer service. We wonder if a plagiarism report is offered as a free service but then requiring payment for it when ordering.
To judge quality, we look at samples on the website, copies of products that we asked users of our site to submit to us, and other feedback that we found out on the web. In general, we can say the following:
- Samples reflected relatively good structure. In one high school custom essay on Hamlet, though, we found the writing to be far too sophisticated for the high school level. As well, there were no transitions between paragraphs. A graduate level research project on the role of technology in HR demonstrated a good understanding of the structure and required elements.
- Our users who submitted copies of academic papers and feedback were generally pleased, although some did indicate that there were some grammar and word usage errors that they had to fix.
Overall, we can say that quality is relatively good.
GrabMyEssay states that its writers are carefully screened, and all possess degrees ranging from Bachelor to Ph.D’s. They are assigned to orders based upon the content field and the academic level of the customer.
Writer proficiency is really judged by product quality. Again, we can say that they are relatively good at what they do.
The customer support department is open 24/7 by phone, live chat, or email. We did contact support team agents by phone and chat on three occasions. We asked detailed questions about the research paper, term paper, and dissertation. Overall, the support team reps were friendly and helpful. We noticed that their understanding of dissertations was limited. They stated that dissertations could be produced in a matter of a few days.
Besides reviewing samples and our own user feedback, we did check with Site Jabber and Trust Pilot for other customer reviews. Here is the rundown:
- There are 209 GrabMyEssay reviews on Site Jabber. 99 of them are positive, but 70 are only 1-star. Overall, the company has a 3.9 rating out of a possible 5. Complaints included poor quality, customer support, and deadlines missed.
- TrustPilot reviews were generally better. 72% reported excellent products and services; 17% were extremely critical.
Pros and Cons
- Full range of products and services
- Clear policies and guarantees
- Relatively good product quality
- Added extras make the final cost pretty high
- Quality appears to be based on choosing higher level writers
GrabMyEssay is a fully legitimate service for students who need custom essay and paper writing at all levels, including college papers and beyond. We find quality to be relatively good but also based upon the selection of higher level writers and other fee-based services. Students might want to begin with a short essay order and see how they like what they get.
