SAS Investigations Private Investigator Fees / Cost

The following fees are based on standard investigation charges and do not include prices on many of our services such as intelligence, criminal defence, hidden asset searches, communications and intelligence work etc.. These investigations will be quoted and carried out on a fixed cost basis depending on the circumstances.

Please note that all fees are correct for most investigations, however certain circumstances may require us to charge a different fee to that listed below and this will be quoted prior to the investigation taking place. Surveillance may potentially incur expenses, and these will include such items as mileage, travel tickets, entry charges, car parking, congestion charge, and any necessary cost incurred in the process of completing the required work.
