Private investigation prices

Private investigator costs vary and the client’s specific needs have to be identified to provide an exact quote, we always provide itemized quotes before starting work, These quotes include a complete breakdown of each component of the private detective costs.

It’s important to discuss with you to fully explore the unique nature of your case. At your convenience, we do this either over the phone, by email or an informal meeting (free of charge). This allows us to explore the most cost-effective way to investigate each case.

Once we have discussed your case, we are able to estimate the timescale and quote that we will need to resolve each case. At this point, we will agree to a clear budget with the client.
