Prices can vary depending on your professional’s experience and the location of the investigation.

Your professional private investigator will be able to advise you on the full range of options, including what is most suitable for you. Use Bark to receive free quotes and get in touch with local private investigators today.

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

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.
