Fees & Charges

Essex Private Investigators Fees & Charges are very competitive.

Following an initial discussion with you regarding any of our services, we will send you a free, no obligation Estimate of fees.

There are no hidden charges.

Out of pocket expenses with a valid receipt are the only additional charges and there will be a valid receipt available upon request. Out of pocket expenses are such things as follow for example anything whilst in your employee: 

  1. Tolls 
  2. Parking
  3. Mileage if over the first 100 miles per vehicle
  4. Entry price at Venue
  5. Hotels 
  6. Restaurants and Bars
  7. Parking and fines.


Above applies only if Applicable and agreed, we hope to include as much as possible of any out of pocket expenses, but from time to time additional fees that are out of our hands can be incurred. This will be discussed at the time and our Estimate for time will be firm.

If you decide to go ahead based on our Estimate and recommended course of action, you should send us full details of the case.

On receipt of the fee as set out in our estimate,  as only cleared funds are acted upon, we will begin the investigation.

Please notify us if your requirements change and we will send you a revised agreement for payment which will enable us to commence work on your behalf.

We will discuss your case with you at each stage. When it is concluded, we will email you a report with our findings, plus any applicable time and date stamped images obtained during the investigation. An invoice marked as paid will also be sent to you at conclusion.
