Private Investigator Fees
You might be wondering what costs you might incur when hiring a Private Investigator. Private Investigators have their own fees, however, we maintain competitive rates throughout the world. This might vary depending on what state or country you are in, type of investigation you need, how quickly you want it done and so on.
Types of Private Investigator Fees
Flat Rate: Discreet Services charges a flat rate with no hidden costs on things like Background Checks, Online Dating Scam Investigations, Locate Investigations, Reverse Cell Phone Research, License Plate check and things like this.
Hourly Rate: Discreet Services charges between $40 and $100 for most locations we cover. This range depends on location and case type. Hourly rates are for investigations like worker’s compensation surveillance, infidelity surveillance, and other field related cases. There are some countries that we have to charge more.
Retainers: A retainer is essentially a deposit for future work. For example, you suspect your spouse of cheating and you want 3 days of Surveillance. Private Investigators will take a retainer for the estimated hours. If Discreet Services requires a retainer for services, we refund the unused balanced unlike many Private Investigation firms. If we catch your spouse the first day, the unused funds are returned.
