What makes a good private investigator?

Hiring a private investigator to help ease any worries or insecurities you have shouldn’t be taken lightly. If the problem affects your love life, family, or even your business, you want the right person to do the job. But, what makes an excellent private detective? Here are some qualities you can expect.

Accurate and in-depth

When you approach a private investigator, they should be able to give you the answers you need (in-depth ones). If they can’t (for legal or security reasons), this will be identified early on. Every bit of information should be handed to you, from the times of meetings to the locations, and the parties involved.

Non-judgemental and trustworthy

Private investigators are still human and aren’t always able to give you direct answers. Even if you are sure the evidence points to a specific thing, evidence can only reveal so much about a person, but can’t show what’s on a person’s mind. The person who will carry the work out will be honest and trustworthy to keep the information between you both.

Quick and creative approach

A private investigator will be creative and resilient when it comes to completing the task at hand. You will be made aware of the prices before any activity is carried out, for example, background checks. If a person isn’t able to be investigated in a certain way, like a lack of a social media page, a quick-thinking private investigator will consider other methods which are as effective. Their expertise will mean that the information is collected accurately, and inaccuracies are rarely made.

Knowledgeable and have a good understanding of the law

There are laws to follow when it comes to carrying out surveillance on a person. Some information can’t be accessed about a person, especially if they are a vulnerable adult or children (who could be put at risk without consent by legal guardians). A private investigator should be on top of the law and will follow the legal practice. Some of the lawful things include following the person in public. Understanding their schedule and who their connections are without looking at the sensitive stuff (keeping to GDPR) is all acceptable too. However, accessing the information on their devices isn’t allowed. Even though movies show private detectives going into a property to install cameras and hidden microphones these are illegal and there are severe consequences for those who do.

Hiring a private detective can help in so many ways. So, if you’re looking for reassurance on a matter, make sure you give us a call today.

Excellent service. I have never used a private investigator before and I was a bit nervous about using this service. However, John responded quickly to my enquiry and was so understanding of my situation. Thank you John and PIUK for your help.

I was very impressed with the service I received from the very first phone call I made to the very end of the investigation. I will most certainly be using this company again.

I have never used a Private Investigator before and never thought I would need to. Unfortunately with having a husband who likes cheating, I needed someone to help me find the proof that I needed. Reluctantly I rang and spoke to John. What can I say apart from the fact that he was brilliant. He was very professional but at the same time very empathetic to my situation. The job was done brilliantly and discreetly and I got the results that I needed to prove I was right all along. I will definitely be recommending John to anyone who finds themselves In the unfortunate circumstance that I was in.

Great result. Hired to keep an eye on my staff whilst he was meant to be working from home. A day out in Blackpool, was not in his job description. There must be many employers in similar situations as me. If you are, then call these guys. Photo’s and videos paint a full picture. Thanks again.

Having used another company before with no joy, I was apprehensive at first. After speaking with John, I felt comfortable and confident to go ahead and glad that I did. He managed to trace my mother who I hadn’t seen for over 17 years and now we are back in touch again. Really happy with the service and would most certainly recommend them. :)

P.I.U.K helped me trace my ex-tenant who had been avoiding me for over 2 years and owed a lot of money. As such I was able to serve him with the court documents to get my money back. Great service.

I called this company to help me find my father. I must say they were brilliant. I didn’t know how it would work or what I needed to do and was very nervous before calling them. John however took his time with me and explained everything in detail as to what would happen and how they would go about it. I’m pleased to say within a few days they manage to find my dad and reunite us. I cant thank John enough for all that he has done for me.
