ASKED QUESTIONS

What Do Private Investigators Do?

A private investigator can work to find clues and evidence to prove their client’s suspicions in a wide range of scenarios.  Often, people come to an investigator when they have their doubts that a situation may not be all it seems, or if a person is acting oddly around them.  We are here to help you to get to the bottom of your problem and collect the crucial evidence you need.

Some of the services which private investigators can do include (but are not limited to):

  • Catching a cheating partner: when you have your suspicions that your partner is being unfaithful, is lying to you or is going somewhere they shouldn’t be.
  • Performing background checks: if you are employing someone, inviting someone to live with you or perhaps renting your property, you will want to know that they are the right person to fit your life. Having a background check is an essential service for many businesses, saving a lot of time and hassle when hiring a new worker.
  • Finding a missing person: sometimes, people slip out of our lives. Whether that is through falling out, divorce proceedings or custody battles, sometimes we need to locate a person discreetly.  This is a service for private investigators, able to find a person with only limited resources such as a first name, a phone number or other minor details.
  • Surveillance: often, people want to know what others are up to when they aren’t looking – surveillance offers the chance to see! If you have your doubts about a person’s behaviour or where they are REALLY going when they leave you, surveillance is a great way to get the evidence to prove your suspicions correct.

Other times, private investigators can find out all about a person, their background, where they live, who they are in contact with and what they are saying.  If you are convinced that someone is behaving in odd ways, perhaps they are seeing someone else behind your back or lying to you about where they are really going, private investigators can find the truth!

A great thing about private investigators is that they are not limited to one area; it is possible to locate people, perform covert surveillance and trace people all over the world.  International investigation is an essential part of the private investigator ‘toolkit’, offering the chance to find people anywhere they may be hiding out.  There is no job too big or small for a private investigator!

Why Hire Private Investigators?

Many people will not have been in the situation of requiring a private investigator before, so may not be aware of the main benefits of hiring a professional investigator!  There are lots of reasons why taking on the services of a professional private investigator could be a great choice:

Firstly, a professional detective will have the skills, knowledge and contacts to be able to perform their job well.  It is sometimes possible to find limited information about people using databases, the internet or social media, but you often cannot get in deep enough to be able to fully locate people, find out about their complete background (including any criminal activities, employment, status etc.) without having the right tools at your disposal.

Private investigators are a real investment for good, as when we have nagging doubts that something is not right, perhaps in a relationship or within our family lives, it can have a devastating effect on our mental health as well as our physical wellbeing.  Through getting your issues resolved using the skills of a private investigator, you are potentially saving yourself days, months, years even of heartache and not knowing – it is often the “not knowing” which hurts the most when something is amiss in a relationship.

With professional private investigator services, you can be sure of 100% discreet services.  Whether you are undertaking covert surveillance, tracing a person or performing background checks, one of the number one rules is that the person in question must be completely unaware.  This is important to ensure they do not change their behaviour while they are being watched, as well as for the safety of the case.  When you take on the services of a detective, you always know that you are safe that the person in question will be completely unaware of the investigation.

Finally, it is important to know that your private investigator has the skills and tools to be able to carry out the job competently.  When we attempt to find things out for ourselves, we often end up getting stuck at a dead end or being unable to go any further into a database.  Detectives and private investigators have the skills and tools to be able to find the information you require with discretion and sensitivity, keeping your information completely confidential.  There really is no alternative.

How Much do Private Investigator Services Cost?

The question of cost is an important one when it comes to hiring a private investigator.  UK Private Investigators offers a low cost and affordable service, but it very much depends on the nature of the investigation, to how complex it is and how many resources will be required to complete the task.  In fact, it is impossible to say how much private investigator services will cost without speaking to the client first!

Once we have a full and clear picture of the situation we can then discuss the likely fee for the service (s) required.  Our clients always fully understand exactly how we expect to proceed before we accept their instruction.

Some agencies in the private investigation business charge a set fee for a number of hours’ work.  This is useful when dealing with issues of cheating partners for example, where an operative can set aside a number of hours to investigate the case.  Other expenses such as extensive travel, recording equipment etc. may be included within the hourly rate, others may not.

When browsing agencies to perform your private investigation work, you may find some charge surveillance fees as little as £35 per hour, ranging up to over £100+ per hour.  Background checks can range between £150-£1000+.  You may see some agencies offer tracing investigations on a “no find, no fee” basis and others may not.  It is important that you ask your private investigator about their fee structure and costs.  You need to be comfortable with the agency you choose to work with! Contact us for details of our fees, which you will find to be extremely competitive and affordable.

When you choose to work with UK Private investigators, you will be sure that you can get in contact with your operative any time of the day or night, as we operate on a 24/7 basis.  We can be reached through our telephone number here in the UK Free any time, and we have a separate international number will can be used for calls outside of the UK.

How to hire a private investigator?

Hiring a private detective was once a challenging process. Only a few years ago, Private investigation companies didn’t even have professional indemnity insurance, which posed a serious risk to the client if problems arise. In today’s time it is a very simple process to enquire about the types of services offered by a detective agency.
