Things to consider when looking for a Private Investigator

For whatever reason you need a private investigator, you must choose the right one that will understand your situation and requirements.

Our team of private investigators have detailed some key points that you should consider or complete when looking for a private investigator to avoid any problems.

Are They Qualified?

Make sure that you are hiring a qualified and licensed private investigator. Visit their website to see if any regulating bodies, qualifications, or licences are mentioned and held. Otherwise, ask to see proof of identification or licences before you proceed with discussing any part of your investigation. You want to ensure that this person knows what they are doing and they are going the right way about it for your peace of mind.


It never hurts to look over some testimonials or ask for references, this backs up that the private investigator is good at what they do and their previous clients have encountered a helpful experience. This is a simple way to gain an understanding of what other individuals felt and the ethic of the investigator, from here you can establish if it seems right for you.

The investigation

When discussing your investigation, it is important to make it clear what you are looking for and understand what the investigator is going to do to achieve this. If the investigator is open to sharing the methods, techniques and equipment that they will use, take it all in and ask any questions that you have. It is key that both parties are clear on why you are seeking their services and how you can uncover your truth in a way that works for you both.


Be assured that the detective you are hiring will keep your investigation confidential. There may be cases that are sensitive and they should maintain a confidential approach. You may be looking for a relationship investigation and not want your partner to find out or you may be looking for a missing person. Whatever it is, if you would like it to remain confidential then be confident that you can trust your private investigator and not have any unnecessary stress.
