Yes, all of our associates and agents hold their individual PI License and our Principal Rod Moratti is Licenced to the New Zealand Courts (PI Licence Number 11-000674). This is important because the license system regulates who can operate in the industry and ensures that we are trustworthy and upstanding citizens.
We are also members of the NZIPI (New Zealand Institute of Professional Investigators Inc).
How much will it cost and how do I pay?

Every task is different so it is not possible to list all costs and fees here. Simply contact us and begin the process. We will be up front with you and on many occasions it will be possible to set fees. You will only have to deal with one contact person and your information is held with utmost confidentiality.
No we can't. The tel-cos' will not make that information available and the Privacy Act prevents us from accessing text or phone record information. However we are experienced at obtaining information in other ways so feel free to contact us and Rod will assess your case and advise the best action to take.
In New Zealand only the individual can obtain their own criminal history. In other words, if you are not the person or you don't have their cooperation to complete the Ministry of Justice forms then we can't obtain that information. For more information see here.

How do you follow people?
Often vehicular surveillance is carried out utilising two cars and the agents are in contact via radio, often changing positions behind the target vehicle to avoid detection and ensure a successful operation. On foot or in public places like the street, bars, cafes and restaurants we blend in easily and can often be alongside the target listening to conversations or observing activity whilst remaining completely unnoticed.
Given an unlimited budget we can pretty much locate anyone on the planet. We do regularly locate individuals in other countries for clients and because of our vast experience in the business we are able to locate virtually anyone within New Zealand. We use sound investigative skills along with local knowledge of people and places, contacts and ingenuity. Find out more
How can I become a PI?
Because we operate a boutique, personable, effective agency the idea of too many magnifying glasses or gun scopes in our brand was not appropriate. We prefer to stay below the radar and maintain a natural camouflage...much like the bug.
