Papercheck.com offers proofreading and editing services in the academic and business fields. We decided to look at what they were offering and review them. After spending time reviewing each of their services, we have compiled our findings and a final verdict on whether they’re worth your time.
For each proofreading and editing service, you’ll have to pay above average prices. Their fastest turnaround time charges $14.95 for a three-hour turnaround. It’s $14.95 per page; which is 300 words. 72-hour turnarounds charge $5.95 per page. As you can see from these extremes, it’s quite expensive for any sort of editing and proofreading service.
From what we could see, they don’t offer many discounts, even for return customers.
Quality of the Services
We invested in their essay editing service. To conduct our test, we used a standard essay with a few major and minor errors. Something simple enough for most competent companies, we would agree. When we got our essay back, we were shocked to find how terrible the results were.
Not only had their so-called professional editing service missed out each of the errors we had implanted into the work. The changes they implemented had turned grammatically correct sentences into grammatically incorrect sentences. Papercheck.com fell far short of our expectations on all levels. We paid them to make our essay worse.

How Soon the Paper is Done
Our English editing work never met the deadline. When the deadline had passed by an hour, we got in touch with them. They gave us a story and an apology and said we would get the work back within the next hour. After another hour had passed, we still had no work. In the end, it took them an extra nine hours to finally get our work back to us.
What They Offer
The company offers academic proofreading and editing services. You can contact them on a toll-free number if you need help, as well as through a live customer support system. They also offer the chance to win a scholarship worth $500 for submitting an essay, although we didn’t try this out. Editing papers online also means you can place an order from your own computer chair.
The live customer support service is something very few companies seem to offer. Whilst the customer support representative clearly did the best they could, we couldn’t understand the opening hours. From Monday to Friday they open at 12pm and close at 10pm. For someone who needs help, these times are just plain inconvenient.
Out of all the proofreading and editing services we’ve used in the past, this is one of the worst ones we’ve encountered. There’s no quality in the work and it’s almost like the editors aren’t native speakers of the language. The pricing is above average and offers no value for money. When combining this with their shoddy ability to keep to a deadline, you should stay away from this company.
