Michigan Private Investigators

(248) 993-0733

There are many private investigators who are capable of getting your job done but it’s vital that you do the due diligence into each company to make the right choice.

Licensed

Most people may not be fully aware of the possible hiccups that could arise in the course of hiring an investigator who does not have a license. For example, such a PI cannot testify in court on your behalf. Even written reports from such investigator can ultimately do more harm than good in your case, because he or she can be blocked as a credible witness, even if the information they have collected is eligible to be classified as critical evidence.

Experience and Expertise

As much as a license is an important part of being an investigator, it is simply not enough. There are other factors that need to be taken into account. The most important things to put into consideration is the experience and expertise of the investigator who handles your case. It does not matter if a company has ten years of experience or four years of experience, your case depends on your investigator, not on the company.

Written Contract

A detailed written contract usually helps in clearing a lot of misunderstanding that could crop up later on in the future. Ensure all charges are clearly stated. Don’t expect to find guarantees in the contract. You’re only paying for the investigators expertise and time. Work only with investigators that provide you with a written contract. This will protect you and the investigator in case a problem arises. Always read carefully, and if you don’t understand anything, ask questions to clear any doubts.

Professional Organization

Being a member of a professional body associated with the investigator’s field sends out the right message about the individual’s commitment to improving the industry standards. This will instantly tell you how professional the PI or background investigator is.

Informed Decisions

Some investigators have high-pressure salesmen that would suggest you contract with them now; otherwise the price will go up when you do later. Again, they can also say the price will be inflated if it becomes a “rush case”. An honest investigator will never charge you extra if you have a case that needs serious attention and immediate completion. Don’t fall for the gimmick.
