We understand people will be calling various firms to get an idea of a local private investigator costs. When doing so make sure you agree the exact amount before instructing them.
You may find that surveillance fees range from as low as £15 per hour up to £125 per hour. Standard background check fees will be from £150 to to over £1000. Some companies will undertake trace investigations on a ‘no find, no fee’ basis and some will not. Never be afraid to ask a private investigator questions so you fully understand their fee structures and costs. Most importantly make sure that you are comfortable with the company you choose.
One of the first questions prospective clients ask is ‘how much does it cost to hire a private investigator?' This questions is impossible to answer without firstly talking with the client to understand exactly what their issues are and what their objective is.
When we have a clear understanding of all the facts we are then able to give a clear indication on our fees, based on the service required.
We always ensure clients fully understand what they will be paying before we accept their instructions.
