The private investigation (PI) industry is experiencing a huge growth period in the UK with the demand for help with a wide range of cases growing by the day. The flexibility a PI company can offer to both domestic and commercial sectors means their services are being used for a variety of purposes that enable fast and accurate results.

This is why the opportunity to purchase this business is not one to be missed. Anyone who is considering opening a new business and is unsure of the industry to step into should read on. The chance to own a new company that has already been fully prepared for launch does not come around too often.

That is exactly what we are able offer you. By purchasing this business you will be taking over an amazing brand that is supported by full marketing material and a cutting edge website. All you have to do is take the reins and reap the rewards that will come your way.

A booming industry

The need for professional and trustworthy private investigation companies is an urgent requirement to fill a growing gap in the industry. At the moment there are thousands of unregulated and unlicensed businesses plying their trade and because of their lack of training and understanding, customers are revealing their dissatisfaction at poor results.

Because this business provides full training, along with recognised qualifications and ongoing support, the owner of the business will be in a prime position to secure a lot of new business. And because these skills can be applied to any industry, the earning potential is totally unlimited.

Below are just some of the benefits:


We’ve put in all the hard work to ensure the right marketing and advertising material is in place, all of which is supported by a fully working and optimised website. This means your new business is ready to start operating as soon as you confirm the purchase. The other great benefit is that you will not have to invest your own money to get things up and running. The costs savings here are huge and the price of purchasing the business is extremely low in comparison. WE GURANTEE ENQUIRIES AND LEADS!!!


Rather than reflect and think about what might have been, purchasing this business allows you to take charge of your career in full. It also enables you to become your own boss, rather than having another person or company telling you what to do and where to go. This also means you set your own business hours to suit your lifestyle.


Owning your own company opens up a world of new business opportunities you never thought possible before. If you choose to advertise nationally, rather than just locally, you expose the business to millions of potential new customers. Private investigation companies are needed right across the country so if you have the capacity to travel it’s an option well worth considering.


Creating a successful business takes a lot of hard work but the money you can earn is more than worth it. Why limit yourself when the opportunity is there to earn more than you ever have done in your working life to date? The satisfaction that comes with being responsible for every penny you earn is one of the best feelings you will ever experience too.

What type of work will I be doing?

Surveillance- £45-£75 per hour

The scale and location of the investigation will dictate the surveillance fees; larger jobs may also require more than one investigator, which will depend on the requirements of the client and the case.

In most cases the fees will begin from £45-75 per hour. To conduct a complete and thorough investigation, a minimum of 4-6 hours is usually required to gather sufficient evidence. This does not take into account the planning that takes place before the surveillance operation begins.

Included within that price will be a detailed written report along with any video or photographic images related to the case. This will serve as confirmation that the investigation has been carried out in full within the boundaries of the law to produce a final outcome.

Tracing Enquiries - £150-£200 per hour

The ease with which missing persons can be located will depend on a number of different factors. Re-establishing contact with someone you have not seen or spoken to in a while is often easier to achieve, thus producing a lower cost. For anyone who has disappeared and purposely does not want to be found, this can be a lengthier process and a more expensive procedure.

The price will also depend on the location of the person you are trying to find. Costs are lower for tracing someone in the UK, while most costs are incurred for locating people who have travelled abroad.

Background Checks - £55-£95 per hour

The demand for thorough professional background checks is growing year by year, with businesses and individuals ensuring they do not work with companies or staff who might pose potential issues at a later date.

The cost of conducting a standard background check on a company typically starts at £200. This would include asset tracing checks, although for more detailed investigations the cost would generally be higher.

As with many services provided by a private investigator the pricing level will depend on a number of factors such as the type of background checks required, travel, the length of time take and how much detail is required.

GPS Tracking - £350- £750 fixed

The use of modern technology enables a private investigator to find clear and transparent evidence, and the type of device used will depend on the nature of the investigation. There are two categories for GPS tracking: Historical, which ranges between £200-£300 and live tracking, which can be anywhere between £500-750.

Other private investigator fees - £55-£95 per hour

This is a rough guideline for the other types of investigation a private investigator can conduct. Each service has a range of different factors to take into account which means the fee will vary.

Other services included;

There are a whole host of services that can be carried out by a private investigator and this includes: Investigating Insurance Fraud, Electronic Surveillance, Absent Employees, Professional Witness In Court, Hiring Of Advanced Electronic Equipment, Patent & Copyright Infringement, Attending Court, Detailed Due Diligence Report and much more.

In most cases the hourly rate attached to this type of investigation is between £55-£95, although there are other considerations to take into account which will add to the overall price.
