Whether you are looking to compile evidence, recover debts, or need surveillance, we’ll find you the best local private investigator on Bark.

What can Private Investigators help with?

Some of the common services your private investigator can help with include:

  • Surveillance and counter-surveillance
  • Taking pictures and compiling evidence
  • Interviewing witnesses and conducting research
  • Conducting background checks and running credit reports
  • Process serving
  • Performing due diligence and debt recovery

How do I choose the best Private Investigator?

There are several factors worth considering when choosing your private investigator. These include:

  • Referrals - You will likely be sharing personal information with this person, so it is important to find someone reliable. Do as much research on the private investigator as possible. Ask trusted friends for recommendations and always check reviews.

  • Office-based - Make sure they have an office. If your private detective only works out of restaurants and over the phone, that is a sign you should get out now. You need to know where to find this person if they don’t follow through on their obligations.

  • Experience - Ask about their experience and education. To make sure your job gets done right, find a detective who specialises in the task you need. Ask about their experience and the results of their past work.

  • Insurance - Most serious private investigators are insured. While it is not necessary for all jobs, if something were to happen during the work, you as the hirer, would be held liable if there was no insurance coverage.

  • Confidentiality - You are very likely to deal with sensitive information when you are working with a private investigator, and you need to be sure they will be discreet and respectful of information shared between the two of you.

  • Contract - Your initial consultation with a private detective should be free, and from there, they should be able to outline anticipated costs. If you choose to follow through with the work, make sure all fees and expectations are clearly outlined in a contract.

  • Be prepared - Brace yourself for what a private investigator may uncover. Be sure you are ready for whatever they may find, especially when it involves people close to you. You may hope the private investigator will prove your fears wrong, but be sure that you will be able to handle all outcomes.


You can be confident that any of the local private investigators on Bark will give you a reliable and professional service.

What do you love most about your job?

If it`s someone who has been cheated on, or someone who has been scammed, I get massive satisfaction being an advocate for those who are needing the truth and way forward. Finding out the truth quickly can actually save a relationship.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Most Private Investigators have needed a Private Investigator at some stage in their lives and I was no exception
I was inspired by the drive for honesty and to find the truth.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am a fully qualified Private Investigator and GDPR qualified. I also hold a BSc (Hons) and MSc. I hold an ICO registration number and fully insured. All footage is recorded in 4k so in a court of law a subject cannot deny it is them.


You are not just a client and I understand that you are going to have concerns about people finding out. Be assured your information is never disclosed to anyone and any subject we are observing will not know of our presence.

I also understand that people who seek a Private Investigator are at a low point. I respect that and will only provide you with the service that you need. I will support you 100% and never charge for email or telephone support and updates.


Rapid PI is exactly that. No delays, no trying to "Up Sell" to you. Up front pricing and honesty. We do our best to price match any lower quote, but will maintain the same high quality service.

EVERY client is treated with respect and confidentially. Our reviews speak for itself.

I will not judge you whatever the situation. I will give you free advise advice upfront.
