I recently had a hit and run experience happen to me. I came out of a store to see my vehicle extremely damaged with a phone number on the windshield. After, contacting the phone number, I found the number to be disconnected. The police wouldn't look into the number, fortunately I came across this investigation team and they did the work ! Though, they couldn't locate the person they spent quality time searching. They even refunded me back my money. If another situation comes up again I will use this company, I highly recommend them!

Thank you Phoenix Investigations and Detective David for your outstanding service. You were quick to respond, extremely professional and very sensitive to my situation. I must admit that I was hopeful, but not overly optimistic that you would be able to locate and find the missing person that I was looking for especially in a War Zone. Your skills and resources are most impressive. Thank you again Phoenix. Outstanding Job!

Ken is a phenomenal private investigator. He got video proof that my husband was cheating on me. He also ran a background check on the mistress that revealed a history of drug problems with court intervention. This information was helpful to secure full custody of my children. He was very professional and understanding with my sensitive situation.

Not only is Kat so amazing at what she does, she is a great person and has one of the biggest hearts. She has treated me more than just a client, and always makes sure im ok. She understands the struggle we are having financially due to what we are going through, and made herself affordable for us, while still giving 115%. Kat is someone you want to hire, she will get the job done and make you feel like you are not alone. I am so lucky to have met her!

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.
