I get questions about my services, fees, the sometimes dirty business of being a private dick and my colorful background colorful all the time. Here are a few of the most common questions.
Do you really answer your phone 24/7?
Pretty close, yeah. I do sleep (occasionally). But if I’m on a stakeout, it could be all night, and I’m just sitting in my car for hours. So sure, I have been definitely known to take a call at 3am.
If I’m not sleeping, or doing something particularly important with my kids or my wife, then yes, I will answer my phone.
How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Private Investigator?
There is never any “one size fits” all in this business. Every case is different, the needs and requirements to help you out vary widely.
I can tell you my hourly fee over the phone, but that is not the answer you need. After all, you probably don’t want to hire me for 5 hours. You want to hire me to find something out or solve your problem.
And only after talking to you will I have a good understanding of what it will require to help you out, and get you the answers you need.
Maybe I can get you an answer in 2 hours, or maybe I need a team to stake out a busy location overnight.
Give me a call, and we’ll work it out.
Do You Offer Refunds?
Sorry, no. Unfortunately, I have to give people bad news all the time, about a cheating spouse, or criminal activity that you probably don’t want to hear. And sometimes even after pounding the pavement, and getting every scrap of information that exists, people still aren’t satisfied with the answers.
So, my time is valuable. If I don’t give you a guarantee up-front of a particular result, then there is no refund. That’s that.
Sometimes, however, I can over a credit for additional services, on a case by case basis.
