By reading this blog, you have already answered the first and most important question – do you actually need to hire a Private Investigator? If you really felt that you were able to do everything necessary to handle your situation on your own, you would most likely not be reading this.
Hiring a Private Investigator often means that you need an expert to help you in a situation that you are not happy with. It could be a cheating spouse situation. You could have a missing person or loved one that you wish to find. You may need surveillance on a cheating spouse or significant other or perhaps an employee or an accident victim claiming injury. These are just a few of the situations that call for not just a Private Investigator, but a great Private Investigator from Investigreat. Now that you know you need to hire someone experienced to handle this situation for you discretely and professionally, the next step is usually, “How much will this cost?” Excellent question.
When you are in a situation that requires outside help, and you tell the person on the other end of the phone that you live in, or the case takes place in Manhattan, all too often the person that you are dealing with will shock you with a high number. Not at Investigreat. Our charges are the same as they would be if your child support case took place in Tribeca, Manhattan as they are in Ditmars Steinway, Queens. A Workers Compensation case, for example, would be the same in Chelsea, Manhattan as it would be in Dutch Kills, Queens and so on. You get the idea I’m sure.
Here is a better apples-to-apples example that will be comparing the direct hourly cost of a surveillance that takes place in, let’s say the Upper East Side. If you go with a Private Investigator that is located in Manhattan (or some huge investigative company that isn’t even located physically in New York City) to handle the case, you could pay on average about $200+ per hour with an eight-hour minimum per day. And let’s say that you only need them to follow the person leaving work for a few hours for three days. For an average case of 24 hours, that would be $4,800 for three days working the case! At Investigreat, which is physically located in Long Island City (just over the 59th Street Bridge) it is only $100 per hour with a four-hour per day minimum. So that same case would now be $2,400 for potentially six days working the case! Twice the days for half the price. Not bad.
When you go with us, you are getting twice the amount of surveillance for the same cost. We not only charge what we feel is a fair rate, but you will also still receive the same high-quality work. We are not some national chain or some cheap discount place either. Quite the opposite. We are one of the top-rated Private Investigative Agencies in the New York City area. We handle all of NYC, Long Island and Connecticut as well as Westchester County. We were rated one of the best by Expertise.com and the number 12 Private Investigative Firm in the world by StarterStory.com. We have over 30 years of experience and are fully licensed and insured. We could charge more if we chose to, however, there are a few reasons why we don’t.
- We are conveniently located in Long Island City so we do not need to charge our clients more money in order to cover Manhattan rent, but we are close enough to service our Manhattan clients as if our office was physically in Manhattan.
- We have always made helping people our priority over profit. We started our company because we care about people and want to help them. We only charge what we need to make a living. We do not believe in being greedy. There is no reason why we should charge someone with a six-figure salary more than we charge someone making much less and vice-versa for the same service.
- We are a family-run business and like to think that we carry our standards over into our business. We would not want our own family members to be overcharged at a time in their life when they are experiencing a situation that can be very emotionally difficult, so why should we allow any of our clients to be charged more than they need to?
We pride ourselves on our integrity, caring, and ethics. That is what puts the “great” in our name, along with our outstanding work which comes from our experience.
Now that you know what you want, one of the main reasons to hire a Private Investigator is that you need someone that is skilled, but also that is objective to help you find the answers you need at a fair cost. Too many times we have clients that tried to do it themselves in order to avoid those high Manhattan prices. The problem all too often is that the case is ruined because they tried to do it themselves and did not have a professional Private Investigator with 30+ years of experience handle it for them from the start. We have heard of this happening way too much – when a decision is made on cost instead of having the right person handle the case from the beginning. We are happy to help you in this situation, however, it would have been much cheaper and easier for both of us had you just come to us initially before the case was burnt. We have the experience, knowledge, and objectivity to work your case the right way from the beginning at a fair price so you do not go into debt trying to get the proof and/or information that you need and deserve to have. That is what a great PI will do for you.
That is what the Private Investigators at Investigreat are all about. So once you have done your homework and shopped around, you will see that we are the best in the business not only for our outstanding work and reputation but for your budget. Call us when you are ready to begin. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
