What to do when you hire private investigator

If you’re thinking of hiring a private investigator, you most likely haven’t done it before. It can be nerve wracking, but it can give you the information you need to take the next step in something, like confront a cheating partner, fire a bad employee or helping you find a missing person. If you’re feeling a bit unsure, read this guide to help the process go smoothly.

Know what you want from your Private Investigator

If you call up with a vague idea of what you want, it can be hard for a detective to get you what you need. A private eye can do a lot of things for you. They can run surveillance on someone, perform a background check, investigate their past, and so on. With a whole host of options, we need to know what we’re trying to achieve in order to chose the best service for you and keep your costs to a minimum. If you want footage of your partner cheating, tell us that. If you just want to know where they go during the day, say that. Then we can help you get what you want.

Contact your Private Eye… in private

You can contact the private investigator of your choice in whichever way works best for you. A phone call, by email, or even by post if you really want! But the main thing is that you make sure it’s in private. Wait until no-one’s around when you make the call. And we mean alone. Just going into the other room usually isn’t enough. You need to have enough time to talk it through fully with us, so don’t call when you just have 5 minutes, but try to set aside a bit of time to explain the everything you need. If you’re going to email us, don’t email us from a joint account where the person in question has access to those email. If we reply and they see the email, there goes the investigation, and they probably won’t take it well…

Tell your investigator everything you know

The more information we get, the less time it takes us to get you the information you need. Which means it saves you money. The more we have to go on, the quicker and easier we can resolve your investigation. For example, if you suspect your teenager is doing drugs, tell us what you know, including the names and times and any places you know they go. This help us narrow our search to those times and places. If you have a name, that gives us a lead to follow. Think of everything you know, and give it all to us! If it’s irrelevant, we’ll ignore it, but some small detail could be the difference between a two hour investigation and an eight hour one!

Just take the plunge!

It may seem scary, but once you have the truth, it will give you piece of mind or the information you need to move forward. Don’t live in doubt any longer. Give our private detectives a call today on 1300 721 715 or email, and prove your suspicions once and for all.
