Private Investigator Fees
You might be wondering what Private Investigator Fees are? Private Investigators have various fee structures, however, we maintain competitive rates in Arizona allowing our Client’s to afford the investigative services they need. Most Private Investigation companies have many additional fees in Arizona. When shopping around, ask what these fees are. Some examples are, but not limited to, mileage, travel, report writing time and more. In most cases, we don’t charge any of these fees for Surveillance cases. We find that it is much easier for Clients to know what their case will cost without worrying about getting hit with additional, unforeseen charges.

Types of Private Investigator Fees
Flat Rate: Discreet Services charges a flat rate with no hidden costs on things like Background Checks, Online Dating Scam Investigations, Locate Investigations, Reverse Cell Phone Research, License Plate check and things like this. We can often work out flat rates for surveillance and any other service to ensure Client’s know what they are paying for.
Hourly Rate: Discreet Services charges between $40 and $100 for most locations we cover. This range depends on location and case type. Hourly rates are for investigations like worker’s compensation surveillance, infidelity surveillance, and other field related cases. There are some countries that we have to charge more.
Retainers: A retainer is essentially a deposit for future work. For example, you suspect your spouse of cheating and you want 3 days of Surveillance. Private Investigators will take a retainer for the estimated hours. If Discreet Services requires a retainer for services, we refund the unused balanced unlike many Private Investigation firms. If we catch your spouse the first day and you wish to discontinue, the unbilled funds are returned.
