Fees and Pricing
Private investigations are unique situations that require a specialized approach. Because of this, our fees and service charges require a variable pricing approach. For one-off services like process serving and background checks, we typically offer a flat fee. This keeps costs down, while also making it possible to standardize our procedures.
Pricing for Specialized Services
Surveillance and other detailed services such as interviews and insurance investigations are difficult to price with total accuracy in advance. Because of this, we typically bill by the hour. However, we will always provide you with a cost estimate ahead of time. We will also inform you of any additional costs such as mileage or other expenses.
We feel we owe it to every client to provide a free, no-obligation initial consultation that includes an honest assessment of the possible costs and the results that can reasonably expected. We will always communicate details regarding all prices and fees. In addition, private investigators in New York and New Jersey are not allowed to work on a contingency basis, and so we require a retainer prior to services being undertaken.
