How do you know who’s the right private investigator for you. There is a difference between a good investigator and a bad one. The difference between whitney carter the two is, they should work and operate their business professionally and charge the correct rates and not rip you off and get rubbish results. If you look on Google or directories you will see thousands of investigators who promise certain things, these sort of things they promise shouldn’t be promised as anything can happening when conducting surveillance, you don’t always get the luck you need and they may be a chance something will go wrong, this is what a good investigator will tell you.

Personally the best way to find a professional investigator who will give you the best possible service and help is from a referral from somebody you know. This is because you know somebody who have dealt with an investigator and will be able to give you positive or negative feed back. If you don’t know anybody who has ever hired a private investigator make sure you make lists and ask questions.
Make sure you look for the following.
Below are some things you need to look out for when hiring an investigator:
What’s the first impression you have from this person? What is his first concern, the money? (Your case should always come first and then the money after you have decided you want to go ahead and hire the private investigator) Can you trust him?
Private Investigators are not officially held to client confidentiality like a doctor is, a good investigator will honor this. They should never share or give out any information and keep everything private that is shared between the two of you, unless the investigator isn’t happy in what you are telling him or how the investigation is shaping up.
If the investigator is compromised they should never disclose the client’s name, this will protect you from any repercussions because of it.
When hiring an investigator you have to make sure they have some experience in the field of investigations you want to carry out. Have they got any educational background such as; Police or military? How long have they been working as a PI have they completed any training courses. Also what areas do they specialize in? It is also good to ask if they have dealt with any cases like yours before and what the end result was.
