a professional

What do you love most about your job?

What I love about my job is that I am able to help people stay safe.

My teams and I prevent and protect our customers from a range of possible harm, dangers, and wrong-doing against them. We focus on preventing and protecting you from physical, financial, and reputational risks.

This could mean that for some of my customers I develop and deliver a discrete and robust plan on how to keep them safe from criminal threat - this sort of work might include providing Residential Security Teams, Security Drivers and Bodyguards - for others it might be about advising on how to enhance their homes security systems ... Everyone is different so my team and I take a personal approach to make sure my customers have the best security available for their needs and in their budget.

For other clients, this might mean undertaking Private Investigations in support of Litigation - this could mean finding people who owe my customers money but are hiding from them to undertaking Due Diligence Investigations before my customers enter into agreements with people for business or personal matters. Over the years we have worked on hundreds of counter-fraud cases, employee absenteeism, insider-threat cases, and more.

We have also helped bring estranged families back together and have gathered evidence to prove or disprove infidelity and other wrong-doings in family matters.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I started my business to make a positive difference in people's lives - no matter whether I am helping people on a business level to keep them, their premises, their staff, their patrons or the public safe; or whether I am helping to keep people safe in their personal life.

The sad truth is we live in an increasingly dangerous world and my team and I have a unique set of skills that we have developed over many years of military service which have practical application in the business and personal world.

Why should our clients choose you?

All our work is customer-focused!
I explain things in plain and simple English.
I keep things real and will be honest with you about what you may or may not need.

Private Investigators FAQs

Expand all

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.

Before you choose a private investigator, you could read testimonials and details of their past work on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark, which displays reviews from past customers.

Absolutely! Although, it's important to carry out thorough checks on your personal investigator as well as looking at testimonials from previous clients, as your professional will be dealing with sensitive information, so you need to ensure that they're trustworthy.
