What do you love most about your job?

What I love the most about my job is knowing that we are making a difference in someone's life. Whether its revealing the secrets hidden in an unfaithful relationship or uncovering massive insurance fraud, we know that the work we provide is greatly needed and appreciated.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Personally, I've wanted to be a Private Investigator since I was a child and saw my first episode of Magnim P.I. After having several years of experience under my belt with other firms, starting my own firm just seemed like the next natural step. We noticed that the "average Joe" did not access to the type of investigators that the wealthy and corporate giants had....and weYes.re decided to fill that void.

Why should our clients choose you?

The moment you retain the services of Campbell Investigating Group, you become part of our family. We strive to ensure that each client feels like they are sitting right there in the office or in the field with the investigator every step of the way. While other firms can only associate their clients with their file numbers, we pride ourselves on being on a first name basis with our highly appreciated, repeat customers. With daily phone updates, and prompt detailed reports, our clients are never left wondering about their case’s progression. Our extensive knowledge of investigative tactics and new-age technology, ensures that your case will be worked in the most time and cost efficient manner possible. Additionally, our investigators are always ready to communicate our efforts with your attorneys and testify in court if need be.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

Yes, all of our services are offered online and remotely...with the exception of surviellance which requires actual boots on the ground.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

The biggest changes we've made to keep our customers safe are that we offer 30 minute phone consultations to do away with them having to travel to our office. Also, we now accept digital payment so that our customers can pay for our services from the comfort and safety of their homes.

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.
