Eagle Eye Investigations services are first rate. Their investigators are well prepared and professional. I really appreciate Andre H. assistance as he was able to acquire valuable evidence necessary for an upcoming court case. He was also able to successfully locate and process serve someone that had been avoiding being served for months. I recommend Eagle Eye Investigations without any reservations.

Having dealt with another investigative firm who delivered less than stellar results, LIA Security & Investigations LLC shows how it’s supposed to be done. They were on the “case” from the beginning, have routinely gone above and beyond and have been very thorough and communicative. They present their findings in a clear and concise manner and quickly establish a level of trust that is critical when dealing with highly sensitive matters. Great firm!

Ted Metzger is a great private investigator. I hired him to take pictures of me and my girlfriend on the day that I proposed to her. He was very flexible, easy to work with, and did exactly what I needed him for! The pictures turned out great, and my fiance never even knew he was there!

Great communication from the beginning via phone and email. This is a very professional company. We received great tips from the CEO personally that led us in the right direction. The staff communicates well with us and reply quickly. I don't want to go into too much detail since the case is ongoing, but I highly recommend this company if you need a private investigator.

I knew for sure something was going on with my husband and one of his coworkers. It was hard for me to prove it outright since they both had to attended the same work functions, same clients, same office. Of course they’d be everywhere together. But Discreet Investigation Solutions was able to prove what I’d known in a short amount of time. They were able to attend these “work functions” with little notice and more affordable than I thought. I’m no longer worried me and my 2 kids will be living in a studio apartment. Thanks you guys so much!!!!

John Morse was refered to me by my attorney for additional assistance in my divorce settlement. John and his team were extremely professional, knowledgable and most importantly, got the results I needed to build my case. It was an emotional time in my life, and I was very pleased with his thoroughness and honesty. He provided on going updates and was always available when I had questions. I would highly recommend John for any investigative needs.

Working with Kevin Perez has been nothing short of amazing! from the moment I spoke with him, his words put me at ease. He helped me locate the address to where my Daughter and her Mother were currently living so I could further pursue my visitation/custody case. I think Kevin Perez is excellent at his job because before I reached out to him I checked with other Private Investigators who said they were unable to help or just didn't return my call. I am more than pleased with the work that Kevin Perez has done, and will immediately refer anyone who needs help that may require his service. THANK YOU!

M. Rockford / MSA Drilling, I hired Homeland Protection Service for seven days to watch my production factory during renovations. Homeland did a fabulous job maintaining access controls of our delivery trucks, construction crews, vendors and employees and overall kept my facility secure. I noticed their staff paid attention, had initiative, offered some great ideas, looked sharp and were always available when I needed them. We received what we paid for and then some and I will absolutely use their services again at my other locations. Great job Homeland and thanks again!

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.
