UK Background Checks

Over the years, we have seen a great increase in the requests for Background Checks in UK and Search inquiries by individuals and companies across the country. This is largely due to the fact that information is power and prevention is better than the cure. Having a great insight into the individuals or companies you are about to deal with will allow you to make informed decisions based of factual evidence presented to you. Instructing Background Checks to be conducted will also give you the peace of mind, that you have carried out all the checks you possibly can and this process will save you a huge amount of disappointment.

Dear John,

I should like to express my thanks for the quality of service, provided at short notice, by your team over the last few days. John picked up and ran with a piece of surveillance I asked him to carry out about the middle of the week. Even when things went pear shaped he persevered and has, as result managed to produce a favourable outcome against quite steep odds, whilst staying focused and professional the whole time. I have been impressed so please express my thanks to him.

EmilyCheating Spouse Investigation

“From the initial enquiry through to completion of the appointment, PUIK delivered an outstanding service providing clear and direct advice and support in a difficult situation that I found myself in.

Above and beyond the call of the professional service they provided, the investigator assigned to my case Osman supported me through a challenging period with friendship and advise akin to that of a dearly trusted friend. This had a profound effect on me and I realised the depth of understanding and skill that the team at PUIK have.

Excellent service and I would have no hesitation in recommending PUIK to anyone who finds that they require the specialist advise and services they offer.”
