I suspected my business partner of stealing from our business so I hired a PI. Esquire was able to find all the information I needed to take my business back. The report they produced was detailed and had photos and documents to support thier findings. With the investigator being a retired police detective was a plus. He conducted an A Plus investigation. I would hire Esquire again and I recommend you do if your in need of a PI.

Mr. Calver did an outstanding job on my case. He was always very helpful and had no problem sitting down with me and explaining things. He has many years of experience and his rates were always fair and reasonable. I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me out in my time of need. His outstanding personality and dedication for what he does was evident in his everyday dealings with his customers. I would definitely recommend him and his company to anyone.

About

I provide private investigation such as cheating spouse, surveillance for 24 hours. My reports are accurate and client confidentiality. I am very in conspicuous; nobody would ever imagine me as spying on them. I look like an everyday average, well-groomed female whom has a personality to fit any situation of character. I can change my looks and appearance to look totally different, and I am excellent in following and not be noticed. I would like to work in the Tri-county area of South Florida from Dade to Palm Beach.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a private investigator do?

First and foremost, good private investigators follow laws. Unlike on TV, they don’t break in windows or hack into hospital computer systems to get you intel. When you hire a private investigator, you’re hiring a professional to gather facts and find information for you. Although they can’t obtain certain information (such as health records), they do have access to information that most civilians do not. Often private investigators are hired to perform surveillance or background checks or investigate cases such as adultery, child custody, missing persons, hidden assets, or debugging, and theft or other crimes.

Private investigators can be hired to interview people and provide that information to the client, perform photo or video surveillance, monitor activity at a location where you suspect criminal activities or questionable behavior, track a person’s movements, find missing people, do deep-dive background checks, and more. Private investigation can be helpful if you’re trying to get a court order but need evidence. Private investigators can also help find birth parents. Nationally, the average price range for private investigation is $70-$210 per hour.

What does a private investigator cost?

Private investigation isn’t just for blockbuster action movies. Hiring a private investigator can help in all kinds of situations ranging from finding a birth parent to improving personal security. Nationally, the average price range for private investigation is $70-$210, although pricing often hovers between $40 and $100 depending on the complexity of the services you need. Where you live in the country will affect your costs for private investigation; larger cities have higher business overhead and a higher cost of living, which in turn means higher service rates. The complexity of your case can also affect cost. A basic background check may have a flat rate, while hiring a private investigator to help with your child custody case may require more legwork and research, and therefore cost more. Some private investigators work on retainer. A retainer is essentially a nonrefundable deposit you pay to the professional — meaning you have retained their services — who then works against that amount. Here are some examples of average private investigation costs:

  • Hourly rate: $60-$70; costs can vary based on current fuel prices.
  • Flat rate: $100 for comprehensive background investigation services.
  • Retainer: $1,500 minimum retainer required by some pros before starting work.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
