How can I find the right professional private investigator?

Of course, selecting the best private investigator is a difficult task.  Therefore, it is extremely important to hire a professional who has experience, a strong reputation and professional integrity.  Here’s a list of ideas to help you choose a top-notch private investigator in Austin:

  1. Ask for recommendations from friends, business associates, or your lawyer. At Bond Investigations in Austin, we find that most of our clients come to us because of a direct referral.  This sort of recommendation can give you peace of mind.  Be sure to pay attention to these referrals if your friend or associate has used the services repeatedly.
  2. Do some research. Many firms have websites that outline their services and areas of specialty. These pages often give information about their staff as well as the regions in which their detectives operate.
  3. Check to see if the business is a member of their professional association. Professional organizations are selective and help to insure standards of service and integrity.  If the association has given a membership to the service provider it means that they are a respected member of their professional community.
  4. Detective services are a regulated industry, and in most locations, a license is required to practice these services. Confirm what licenses are required in the area, then be sure to work with only licensed investigation firms.  Bond Investigations holds a license in all location where required, including Austin.
  5. Before you enter into negotiations with any private detective, you should decide for yourself what budget you are willing to invest in the investigation. Private investigation services are often time consuming, and as such, are very seldom cheap.  Any truly professional private investigator will never work for a nominal fee. You should be aware that many suspiciously low priced proposals are scams. You get what you pay for.
