Private Investigator Costs Australia

For Australia and New Zealand

Most people of the general public using a private investigator for the first time, usually do not correctly understand legal Australian private investigation procedures nor what it may cost. There are different types of investigations and generally the cost will differ and may be customized to suit the client’s objectives and budget.

Private investigation costs can vary between agencies however, can affordably start from $75 for basic searches and $100 per hour for surveillance inclusive of all fees, depending on the investigation type and amount of work and time required. When choosing a private investigation agency, the main things to consider are the qualifications and credentials of the private investigator and then the transparent methods used to investigate your objectives so you know whether it is correct and legal and what you are actually getting and paying for.

Other less scrupulous private investigators may not list any qualifications and credentials on their website usually because they are only minimally licensed amateurs whereas My Spy have detailed credentials that are above most competitors including two decades of experience, over a decade of insurance investigations accreditation, four certificates in government and investigative services, certificate in security guarding and master license for qualified investigations and surveillance of persons.

Commonly people also incorrectly assume private investigators in Australia have other extraordinary legal access to information held by government and or private institutions and or provide illegal hacking and tracking abilities where this is not the case including with the Police records, Centrelink office, Visa and Immigration department, Tax office, Motor registries, Roads and Maritime authorities, Bank and Telecommunication institution records. Australian private investigators also may not illegally hack someone’s phone or computer, GPS track someone’s movements and property and or install a recording device on private property without consent or you could be found guilty of a criminal offence in some Australian jurisdictions.

If you contact another private investigation agency and they say to you “how we do it, is our secret” and or ask for a bulk payment without disclosing the correct and legal methods of investigation and how much service and or times was billed, then you could be misled and ripped off.
