    There is more to hiring a P.I. Agency then just the price. Firstly you should meet the investigator and see if they actually have an agency or are they just a P.I. without insurance and an office. Once you have confirmed that the P.I. is legitimate inquire about prices. The going rate for P.I.’s start around $70 up to $125 in Ontario. We know that different provinces have different market demand so their prices may vary. Beside hourly rate, there is also travel and disbursements.

Paid parking, the subject goes into a restaurant, a meal could be added, hwy 407 travel, these costs are usually shown with receipts provided to the client after the job is completed.

    Can a cell phone location be tracked?

    Yes and no. Cell phones can be tracked however there are legal and privacy issues involved to consider. We are able to “ping” a cell phone, which involves locating a cellphone when the subscriber replies to message. This is not the same as continuous tracking.

    Our team is 100% discreet and your contact with our company is completely confidential, these terms are included in our engagement agreement.

    How long does it take to get answers?

    Depending on the type of service requested, it could take 4 hours or it could take 4 days. We can’t predict what people will do and we can’t make them do something. But rest assured, if there is something happening, we will find it!
