How Much a Private investigator Cost?

If you are considering hiring a private investigator, there is a very good chance that one of your first questions will involve how much their services cost. So, how much does a private investigator cost? Unfortunately, it is not quite that simple to come up with an answer. There are numerous factors that must be considered when determining the cost of a private detective, such as:
  • The type of investigation and/ or surveillance required.
  • How long the investigation lasts.
  • The number of hours spent working on the investigation, as well as what particular service is being performed during that time.
  • What type of equipment is needed to satisfactorily complete the investigation?
  • Where the case is conducted. For example, does it require a private detective to travel outside of the Cape Town area and for how long?
Our experienced private detectives will provide you with an estimate of fees before the investigation begins without any obligation. In some instances, we may be able to offer flat rates, as well as hourly or package rates.
