FAQ's

Yes, Private Investigators are completely legal.

Private Investigators are essentially hired to gather evidence for the client to help with the case. This is carried out through many different, but legal methods. Some of the investigations conducted are as follows:

·        Surveillance

·        Tracing People

·        Asset Investigations

·        Background Checks

·        Child Custody Matters

Private Investigators offer the same services to Law Firms as they would to a member of public or a business. This would include the following:

·        Establishing where someone currently resides

·        A person’s business or employment status

·        Placing an individual, a property or business under discreet observations to establish exactly what is happening.

·        Conducting an asset search to establish what tangible assets an individual may be not be disclosing in a divorce or child custody case.

·        Obtaining irrefutable photographic and video evidence to counter a fake personal injury claim.

Private Investigators are extremely knowledgeable in knowing where to look for the information required to help your case. This could be access to privileged data or open-source information.

Private Investigators make their money by leveraging on their skill set, knowledge and expertise in uncovering the evidence you need. Relying on a specialized set of skills perfected over years, private investigators help you obtain evidence that is admissible in court.

Knowing where to look for the information required is imperative to the success of any investigation. Whether it is through covert surveillance, opensource intelligence or trawling through public records, private investigators know exactly where to look.

Prices for the services of Professional Private Investigators do vary somewhat, depending on the services required. Please note that full time professional private investigators will charge a professional fee. The industry is littered with part-time investigators that are trying their hand at becoming an investigator and supplementing their full-time income. Do be warned, that paying  a cheaper price comes with high risks of the objective being compromised and receiving a substandard service.

Isn’t it better to hire a professional the first time around?

·        Tracing – £149 – £475

·        Background checks – £475 – £750

·        Legal dispute

·        Due diligence investigation

·        Personal matter

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 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.
