Every investigation is different – The process of hiring a PI

So you’re thinking of hiring a private investigator Sydney/Melbourne… You don’t know where to start, what to expect, what will be involved. Read on as we take you through the process of hiring a private detective from start to finish.

Our private investigators Sydney/Melbourne are an experienced team who have been in the business for year. Extensive experience and training means we know what to do for every situation. You, on the other hand, have likely never hired a private investigator before. So, to help you make sense of the process and make it easier, here’s what to expect:

You contact your local Elite Investigations private detective. You call us, or you send through an enquiry email and we call you. One of our team speaks to you about your needs. What’s the objective? What evidence do you want (footage, documents, etc)? What clues and information do you have to help us reach your objective? What is your budget? This is where our detectives assess the investigation that they will need to run for you, the likelihood of success, and the likely duration.

From here we will usually take this information away and put together a rough plan of the best course of action. Then we can come back to you with an estimate of the investigation costs. This estimate is matched to what you’re hoping to achieve and how much you have to spend. We can also make the investigation variable, depending on whether your budget is it fixed or if it can it vary based on the scenario. For example, if we find evidence that your partner is cheating, you are willing to extend the duration of the investigation to find out if it’s an once of fling or a full blown affair, but if we find out they really have just been working late, we can end the investigation there.

Then, your private detective Sydney/Melbourne will commence the investigation, keeping you updated as we go on any points that are of interest to you. You private investigator will keep an impeccable record of everything that happens from start to finish, who is there, what’s happening, what was involved, etc.

Then at the end of the investigation you get the full record of investigation, including photographs, high quality video footage, any records or background checks, and a fully itemised bill with the final amount for our services.

Every investigation is different, as we tailor our service to meet your needs and the uniqueness of every situation. You can’t know beforehand what will be found, but you can know your investigation is in good hands.

Our highly trained and specially trained detectives can help you find out the truth. Give us a call on 1300 721 715 or email to see how we might be able to help.
