Payment for the services of a private detective takes place in two stages.
The first stage is an advance payment, which is paid by the client before starting work.
This money is needed to pay direct costs associated with resolving the client's issue - searching for information, requesting the necessary data, technical support.
The second stage is the payment of the remaining part of the total amount of work, which is paid by the client after the private detective has fulfilled all his obligations
All the client's expenses are negotiated before starting to resolve its issue and pay for services.
Usually, the advance payment is 50% of the volume of services provided.
The agency can also charge a 100% prepayment. These are services with low cost ($20- $50) or one-time transfer of a large amount of information. For these cases, the private detective's advance will be 100%.
If the service provided is related to a business trip, the advance payment of a private detective will consist of the sum of two parts.
The first part is 50% of the total volume of services.
The second part is 100% payment of expenses that are associated with additional expenses of the detective (or a group of detectives).
Private detective fees may include additional costs.
Additional expenses are the cost of a hotel, train or plane tickets, payment for fuel with a large mileage of cars, payment for a restaurant, expenses for a business trip
As a rule, an additional waste of finance occurs when conducting activities that are related to surveillance.
Do you need to surveillance on someone in a restaurant? The detectives' fee, includes the amount for petty expenses during surveillance. However, it should be noted that detectives cannot order a couple of cups of coffee and spend the whole evening at a table with them.
The second case - the subject of observation leaves for rest, and you want to continue surveillance on the person during the rest.
Various situations are possible, but in any case, you will always be aware of the estimated costs before paying for the detective's services.
