Cost of Hiring a Private Investigator

What is the cost of hiring a private investigator in Singapore?

Private investigator firms usually charge clients based on the number of hours or the number of days required to complete the investigation. There are also those that offer package prices which contain a set amount of hours for a discounted price. Private investigators normally require a deposit of around 50% to 80% of the total cost when the agreement or contract is made. They should also refund you the hours or days that have not been used for the investigation as a fairness and assurance to the client.

Honestly, there is no pricebenchmark in this investigation industry. Like any other business, a private investigator firm has overheads such as office, full time investigators, part time investigators, equipment, and in Singapore, marketing and advertising costs.

Needless to say, a well marketed and seemingly reputable private investigator firm who spends a lot on advertising will either need to have a lot of cases or charge high prices in order to balance the costs. If you are on a budget, considering such a firm to hire may see your case unsolved as you will not be able to afford the minimum number of hours required to gather the evidence.

It is best to do some research before deciding.

We highly recommend you to search the forums to gather opinions of those who have tried the agency's services before making your decision as you might not want to waste much time and effort on firm-hopping. You will see that there are many complaints on investigation companies that take deposits but do not deliver, or charge exorbitant fees.
