Will Maker Credibility Review

In all will maker reviews, we include a section devoted to the company’s credibility. One of the major signs of the company’s reputation is how long it has been on the market. In general, the online will making market is pretty young. The majority of the companies were created in the XXI century. In our reviews, we always include the year when the company was established.

Another sign of the company’s credibility is its rating on consumer reporting sites. In our online will reviews, we look at the Better Business Bureau and Google ratings to determine the company’s credibility. Almost all of the companies that are registered with BBB have an A+ rating, and Google ratings range from 3.9 to 5 stars.

Will Maker Reviews of Services and Pricing

Another important part of each will maker review is a list of its services and will prices. Online will makers take different approaches to sell their services. In some companies, you can buy each document separately. In others, you can buy a package of documents. Some companies offer monthly or annual subscriptions with or without a free trial period, others even offer free will-making services. In our reviews, we summarize all this information in a convenient table, so that you can immediately see whether you can buy a single document, a package, or a subscription, and how much it will cost. Also, we add a list of the most popular documents offered by each company. Additionally, we have free will maker reviews where you can learn if a free will is a suitable option for you.

Strong and Weak Points of Online Will Makers

For each online will maker that we review, we list concise pros and cons in the top section and more detailed strong and weak points later in the text. The strong points may include free trial periods, state-specific services, great customer services, and such. Weak points may include higher pricing, questionable customer services, and even misleading marketing, as we perceive it, that some companies use to attract more customers. As you know, it is always important to read the fine print, and this is what we do for our trust & will reviews.

List of Competitors in Will Software Reviews

For each company we review, we list the most prominent competitors and briefly mention how they stand to each other in terms of services, prices, or customer support. In case you are interested in a more detailed will maker comparison, please see our battle pages for LegalZoom vs. Nolo and Rocket Lawyer vs. Legal Zoom. If you are interested in detailed comparisons of other companies, please let us know and we will create them for you.

Ease of Use in Online Will Reviews

Online will makers use different platforms that can be more or less easy to use. This is why we included the Ease of Use section in our reviews. Nolo, for example, uses downloadable will maker software  for most documents, and a cloud-based platform for the last will and testament templates. The majority of the companies use cloud-based platforms known for their safety and convenience. The most technically advanced companies are moving to mobile platforms. Some of them, such as Tomorrow.me, for example, is a mobile-based service only.

Unique Functions Review

Each online will maker tries to stand out from the crowd and provide some unique features to their customers. These may include step-by-step tutorials or video guides, comprehensive legal document coverage, free consultations, and such. These features are not always obvious when you visit the company’s website. In our online will maker reviews, we always pay special attention to the outstanding and unique features of each company and underline them to our customers.

Frequently Asked Questions

This section of each paid and free will review includes all the essential questions that the customers might have when they select an online will maker service. The answers to these questions summarize the most important points of the whole review. Some companies have more detailed FAQ sections on their websites. So, if you have more questions, you can proceed to the company’s website and find the answers there.

Final Words About Online Will Reviews

In our will maker reviews, we tried to be as comprehensive as possible. We included information about the company itself, when it was established, and how it stands now. We looked at whether it is credible if it is registered with the BBB, and how it rated with Google. We covered the company’s services, whether the documents can be purchased separately, as a package, or under subscription, and how much it costs. We underlined the strong and the weak points in each review and compared the company to its prominent competitors. Additionally, we offer free will reviews and explain who can use them. We hope this information will help you select the best online will maker for your needs.
