Hello, my name is James. I hired this company to do surveillance on my wife. I knew she was cheating, but I wanted proof for court. She was going on a business trip to the U-P. I dropped by their office and explained my situation. A friend of mine said he used this company three years ago on his girlfriend, and highly recommended them. Harry told me that all of his investigators were out on assignments, but he himself would work the assignment. (I thought he was just a manager, I later found out he was the Owner) He not only accepted my case, he departed that day and drove 7hrs into the UP, found my wife (well, soon to be x-wife) and identified who the man was (Who was a friend of hers from High school) He took both video and pictures. He even did a background check and found out that the man was a sex offender. I hope I never need to hire these guys again. But I certainly will. Harry was very professional. I called around before my friend recommended this. No one could touch these guys prices. Very affordable. I just want to thank them again for the service they provided. THANK YOU!

The BEST Private Investigators in the State of Michigan. I hired another agency before finding Eye Spy. That agency took my money and never returned my calls. Be careful of who you trust with your had earned money. I am grateful for the professionals at Eye Spy.

We hired CIS to investigate a very complex matter. A matter that our local law enforcement authorities seemed incapable of performing to our satisfaction. Mike's hands on investigative techniques proved exceedingly fruitful. I highly recommend CIS and Mike Ivezaj to anyone seeking a true professional and veteran investigator. B.B.

In 1995, I founded ACS as a loss prevention consulting agency to middle market companies. As we grew, we realized that we excelled at surveillance and claim investigations and became recognized as a leading insurance claims investigations provider, and our client base began to grow. One highlight was being awarded Walmart’s Vendor of the Year in 1997 for Outstanding Video Surveillance.


We are owned and operated by a retired Detroit police officer who is trained in executive v.I.P. Training, store loss prevention, surveillance, skip tracing, robbery prevention and homicide investigations. Our company has provided security for nursing homes, CVS pharmacies and dollar general stores where the shrink dropped dramatically with our presence. The owner personally trains each and every member along with updated in service training for employees. We provide uniform and plainclothes professional investigators/security guards.


Motor City Ghost Hunters is a paranormal investigative team serving all of Southeastern Michigan. We investigate using scientific methods to prove or disprove a haunting or sightings in residential, commercial buildings, as well as historical sites. Some of our group members have over thirty years of experience in all aspects of the paranormal. Our group is located in Wayne County, although we currently have members from most of the surrounding areas. We are available by appointment to investigate your location at no charge to you. All findings will be kept confidential; no names or locations are given to the general public without written permission. We only want to help you learn to live and/or work in your current surroundings.


We are experts in surveillance, especially difficult situations and hard-to-follow individuals. We offer GPS trackers, background investigations, and asset checks. We offer process services and locate services as well. Where we shine is that all of our investigators are former or current law enforcement officers with the best in local, state and federal training and experience. We formed this business out of passion for what we do, not a need to make a buck.

Got ghosts? We can help free of charge. We are a team dedicated to helping people who believe they are experiencing a paranormal Activity, and our services are free, from beginning to end. There are no hidden fees; some clients insist on paying us, and for those customers, we will accept donations, but they are not required. We just want to help, and in the process hopefully find out what's really out there. As soon as you contact us, we start working on your case with research, and then we arrange a meeting, so you will know upfront who will be coming into your home or business. We interview you and anyone else that may be involved in witnessing the activity in the place the investigation will take place, and then we contact the other members of the group and get several dates we are all available then we let you know the dates and let you decide when the investigation will take place, which is usually at night. While we have done daytime investigations, it is almost always on a Saturday night, and we do ask that the client leave the premises during the investigation, although if you want to stay, you can help man the monitors, but we do not allow the clients to investigate with us except in rare instances. This process can take a few weeks, so be aware of that. If it is an emergency, and you want a smudging or cleansing, we can do that. Usually, after we meet with a client, the activity ramps up and almost always after the investigation, and it takes a couple of weeks before we can go over all of the evidence and get back to you with the results, as we all have jobs. There is also no fee for the results. A lot of groups offer free investigations then charge for the results even if there isn't any. We do not do this. We do ask that you do not tell anyone about the investigation until it is over to cut down on onlookers and possible outside contamination of evidence. We look forward to hearing from you.

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.
