Depending on the type of task, we operate on an hourly rate or come to a set fee arrangement. Usually a trace inquiry will have a set fee which we will agree upon once the nature and difficulty of the task is known but a standard trace costs just NZ$575 including taxes.

Surveillance can sometimes be undertaken by a solo agent but usually requires two vehicles in secure radio contact so we can swap around and maintain covert surveillance.

The cost for standard 2-agent surveillance is NZ$120 per agent hour plus mileage, any expenses and GST.

We will normally require two agents in secure radio contact so we can swap around and maintain covert surveillance.

If it is a single agent this will be $180 per hour plus mileage, any expenses and GST.

The expenses depend on the task and may include, flights, accommodation, rental cars, parking, meals or more usually, a coffee or meal if the person we are following enters a cafe or restaurant and we need to blend in to maintain visual connection.

For surveillance jobs you need to allow us additional travel time each way to and from the job.

It is impossible for me to predict when activity will occur or how long we need to be on a certain job.

But for the sake of an approximation, often clients will have a result within 5-10 hours.

To assist with this, if you have some idea about a pattern of behavior or when the activity is more likely to occur, then we will be able to focus our hours and therefore keep the cost to a minimum.

We can provide a quote on application once we have discussed and assessed your requirements.

Payment is easy, either Internet banking, or PayPal.

Investigation work is charged at NZ$180 per hour plus expenses and GST.

Every task is different so it is not possible to list all costs and fees here. Simply contact me and begin the process. I 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.
