I can not begin to say how happy I am that I west with this company. One company on here tried to discourage me from going with this company because the owner is a former Police Detective. After meeting Joe I found him to be very professional and sensitive to my problem. The job he did for me was really great and he accomplished even more than I expected. Thanks again

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!

I hired Alan for process serving, he was really prompt and thorough. I needed papers served to a corporation, bu the address was not good, so Alan did research on all the possible alternative address/registered agent of the company without even being asked.

John Leccese is an extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy person to know and do business with. He performs his services morally, ethically and professionally. His awareness of privacy issues and the law surrounding his scope of services is second to none. He is a thorough and effective person to work with and I would highly recommend him to anyone requiring his service as a private investigator or security in the workplace consultant.

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.
