We arrange an appointment at our office or at another location in Belgium. A licensed investigator will ask information about the purpose and goals of the investigation, to collect any relevant information about your case. We discuss the legal possibilities and feasibility of the investigation as requested. We would like to offer you some perspective, even in difficult circumstances. We rely on emotional intelligence (EQ) and empathy to achieve a breakthrough. We care about your feelings. For example, we will never promise that we will find a missing person if there is no indication at all.
If you agree with our quotation and action plan, we will sign a private detective agreement. Then the private detective(s) start(s) the assignment and choose(s) the appropriate working method(s). For example: a discreet pursuit, webresearch, data analytics, case study, door-to-door enquiries, static surveillance, interrogations or short-term infiltration (for instance: mystery guest).
Open communication and extensive feedback are necessary to reach a high success rate. Our detectives do their utmost to report all circumstances and details of the inquiry. The investigation report mentions the full whereabouts of the “target”, with facts instead of suspicions.
Your contact person will keep you informed on a daily basis by telephone, report or e-mail. We will contact you at a moment that suits you. We always take into account the agreements concerning the number of shifts and investigation areas.
You’ll receive a full report when the research has been completed. An investigative report is written to provide you with a detail analysis on the findings of the investigation. The comprehensive report contains observation sessions, documents and photographic/video evidence. We ensure that the report is accurate to the findings of the investigation.
How much do you need to pay for hiring a detective? Of course you would like to know what it costs to hire a private investigator and what it costs to solve your case in its entirety. The hourly rate, the mileage allowance and the operating costs are discussed during the introductory meeting. We always take into account the budget you have in mind. A maximum number of shifts or a maximum number of working days is stated in our agreement. Transparent rates are applied at all time. In some cases you can opt for a fixed price, e.g. in case of periodic screening assignments.
The investigation costs depend on the complexity of the assignment. For example, a case study or an interview with a witness takes fewer working hours than a surveillance. The deployment of the exact number of private investigators depends on the type of investigation you require. A regular check of a few addresses, for example, is easier than a surveillance assignment during a traffic jam.
