This is my first experience working with a private investigator and I didn't know what to expect. Mr. Thomas has performed his services in a very professional and efficient manner but he also has gone above and beyond by showing he cares and that he's not just here to collect money. I have every confidence that he is dedicated to resolving my case as quickly as possible. I also like the fact that he does exactly what he says he will do.

In looking for a private investigator, Thumbtack referred me to George Gamble. I was going through a terrible experience with an unsuccessful process server and desperately needed helped. George was kind and listened to my very difficult circumstances. He understood that I wanted to try to come up with new ideas on how to get someone served. Even though I was not able to hire him, he gave me advice and additional tactics that might work. He also shared documentation with me that really helped me make some key decisions going forward. You know someone cares when they help you even though they don't have to. I really appreciate having the opportunity to meet him and get his wisdom along the way. I would definitely recommmend working with him if you want to be treated like a person not just a client.

Zane Kinney of Astinel performed a background and due diligence analysis for me related to a potential business partnership I was considering. He performed some very thorough work and uncovered some significant issues--important red flags--which I would not have found or noticed on my own. Because of Zane's work, I've have avoided significant loss of not only money but reputation. I cannot recommend Zane and his firm highly enough.

Contracted Direct investigations to locate some clients that defaulted on contractual agreements. They were not only reasonably priced but detail oriented and proficient. Would use them again and recommend them to any person requiring private investigation services. 5+stars

    I consulted Detective Roberts to assist me on gathering some intelligence about a family trust fund and potential financial fraud. Within two days Detective Roberts presented me with an extensive report of all parties involved including the holders of the money which allowed me to get my funds and assets in its entirety efficiently and in a timely manner.

    As a Doctor of Psychology, and for several years, I have had the pleasure of referring my clients to Mr. John Radomski who has gone above and beyond the call of duty with not only his expertise in the field of Private Investigations and Spy Gear equipment, but with his compassion for humanity which has been unmatched to any other professional I have worked with. I give Mr. John Radomski five stars in a four star world and would recommend anyone needing his services and especially the more challenging cases as he has had over thirty successful years of experience behind him. He once shared with me that he takes pride in helping his clients find the truth and that he does.

    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.
