Private Investigator in Middlesex County NJ

The cost of a private investigator can vary depending on several factors, such as their level of experience, the complexity of the case, the location of the investigation, and the amount of time and resources required.

Most private investigators charge an hourly rate, which can range from $150 to $450 per hour. However, the more skilled agencies can cost much more. The hourly rate will depend on the experience of the investigator, as well as the nature and complexity of the investigation.

Some private investigators may also charge additional fees for expenses, such as travel, equipment, and other resources required for the investigation.

It’s important to note that private investigators may require a non-refundable retainer fee upfront, which can be several thousand dollars, depending on the scope of the investigation. The retainer fee will be used to cover the cost of the initial investigation and any expenses incurred, such as travel or equipment. The remaining balance will be billed to you hourly, and you will be required to pay the balance once the investigation is complete.

It’s recommended that you speak with several private investigators to understand their services. Once you do, you’ll find that we have the experience in surveillance that do-it-all detectives don’t. We may charge more, but we provide the best value for your money, ensuring that you receive quality and professional services.

IMPORTANT: There are many companies offering Investigative Services who are NOT Licensed Investigators and are therefore operating illegally. Therefore be careful and demand that the company provide you with their License Number and then verify it through New Jersey at (609) 633-9352 or New York at (212) 417-5800; in PA you must contact the Clerk of Courts in the County where the company claims to be located.
