I needed someone to serve some legal documents. After several failed attempts at trying to find a friend or.relative to do so , I looked someone up on thumb tack and am so thankful I came across john. He met up with me the following day, sat and talked with me about what would be done. And even served the documents ten mins after I returned home, video included. The next day we met again so he could give me the affadavit. Super effiecient, professional, quick , and a nice guy to top it off. Very pleased with his services.

Man this guy cleared all doubts I had on regards of my ex fiancé when he helped me find out she was having an affair with a coworker a year into the proposal. He brought more than enough evidence to the table which allows me to say hands down this guy knows what he’s doing & truly knows meaning on what it takes to be a private investigator. Mr Mark you said to me you’ll find the answers to all my questions when I hired you & let me tell you, you sure are a man of your word!

They were professional and efficient. I had gone to another investigator before, but the investigator here did a better, faster and cheaper job and got me the answer I'd been looking for. I strongly suggest them.

Iuliana was invested in helping me resolve the issue with which I was faced. She was incredibly thorough in her investigation. She took her time and cared about the work she produced. When we sat down to discuss the matter, Iuliana was present, she didn't rush the conversation. She was responsive to my inquiries and provided her professional opinion regarding what information was or wasn't needed to accomplish the task at hand. If you're looking for a dedicated, competent and practical investigator, I would recommend her enthusiastically.

Daniel is extremely communicative and extremely informative. When I hired him in August I did not know what to expect. When we met he took me through the process and told me that he will communicate with me throughout the day. I was suspecting that my husband was cheating and i really just needed the proof as I suspected that he was taking a women to a work event. On the day of the event, Daniel called me and told me that he was already at the location which I thought that this was nice, he then throughout the day/night he was calling me, sending me pictures and giving me play by play over the on goings. I would recommend him to anyone that is needing a private investigator as he not only really nice and also makes you feel that the money was well spent as he communicates with one throughout the process sending pictures and calling with information. No matter what the issue is when someone is hiring a private investigator it is difficult but Daniel is extremely responsive and communicative which makes the whole experience amazing! Thanks Daniel

I was a bit nervous to hire a Private Investigator, not knowing what to expect but meeting with Mr. Campbell settled my nerves completely. I discussed my concerns and revealed why I needed his services. Mr Campbell was professional and patient and I quickly realized I was in safe hands. My case was resolved promptly and effectively. I have nothing but positive reviews to give this company and will be using and recommending CIG, LLC for all future cases.

One of the Detectives, Rosa, did a check on the background of a company I was thinking of investing in. Thank goodness I did! It saved me money and potentially A LOT of aggravation! I'm forever grateful!

Our experience with J&K was excellent! The investigation was done very timely and acurately. With speciality in finding individuals they were a perfect match to our needs. The service was very professional and we felt very comfortable in disclosing our personal information and that of the individual we were looking for. I would rate the service as 5 stars and the fee was more than fair and very competitive.

I have used Veriscope's investigators on a number of client matters, and have been extremely satisfied with their results. Before finding Veriscope, I had used other investigators with very mixed results and bills that always felt excessive. There's just no comparison in my mind - Veriscope is really good, extremely professional and knowledgeable -- if they can't get it done it's probably just not doable. It also doesn't hurt that their bills have always come in less than I was expecting. My clients have been very happy with me at the cost and results from using them!

This is a top-notch NYC investigation firm. Their surveillance team; including the professionally written reports, and close-up photography, is head and shoulders above the others. We have had a close working relationship with CPI for many years, and they always come through for our firm, and our clients. CPI also offers missing persons location services, sweeps for bugs and wire-taps, and even lie detection services (polygraph) for either business or personal investigation matters. If you or your business require investigative or protection services, call Mr. Banks or Mr. Pinto, for a prompt, efficient resolution.

Kenji came highly recommend to me through some close friends. Quite frankly, I was going through some difficult times in my life and found myself requiring his services. Professionalism doesn't even begin to describe his persona and belief system. He has years of experience to back his professionalism. My primary concern was his confidentiality, which he proved to be outstanding with! If you find yourself needing his services, you will not be disappointed. I have personally referred Kenji to several friends of whom also have had wonderful success with. To be blunt, Kenji is a top-notch private investigator with the knowledge, experience, and psychological mindset to achieve results. Hire him. You will not be disappointed.

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.
