I have known Tony throughout his career as a criminal investigator and he was an outstanding agent. He has carried that same work excellence and dedication over to his private investigations business. I contacted Tony to locate an individual who lived out of state. I also asked him to provide me with an address and a phone number to contact this individual. He performed the task in less than 5 minutes and I was able to contact the individual that same evening. The information he provided me was completed quickly and was 100% accurate. I will continue to use his services without question in the future.

The private investigation request made to Mr. Bates was met with such professionalism and expertise during our initial conversations that without doubt I decided to use his services after canvasing others. I commend you on your results, dedication and efforts. Being very impressed and ultimately safer with all the intricate details you provided I am recommending you from the informative services you provided.

    I had a very positive experience working with the services provided by Jemel @ JK Private Investigations. He was very professional and his rates were reasonable. He kept me informed every step of the way and I received a very detailed summary report at the end of the investigation that my attorney feels will be very beneficial to my case.

    I contacted Piedmont on very short notice for a holiday weekend. They were they quick to help and didn't even bat an eye at my needy request. Beth held my hand through the entire process. She kept me informed with timelines, as-they-happened reports from the investigator, and even called to follow up with me a couple times in the days following to make sure I had everything I needed. Beth was amazing. Start to finish, cannot say one negative thing about my experience.

    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.
