We answer calls all day from people with very different stories. The majority of calls start with “Well I called you because you’re the first place I clicked on.” As much as we appreciate potential clients choosing us, they should do a little more research. How does one know they’re hiring a real PI? Covert Results has done the research to better help you pick an Investigation Company. 

If you’re seeking a PI it’s on you to do your due diligence on the company you’re hiring. A good place to start is their website. Your PI should be good at blending in but their website, pricing, and types of services should not. Always be sure to review the company’s “About us” section. Knowing the experience of the investigators and where they come from can help drive your decision. If you can’t find this information it may not be worth your time. Investigators can be expensive. Be sure you’re spending your money wisely. 

Once you’ve established you like a PI company don’t be afraid to ask questions. As great as it would be to make all initial consultations in person, in the age of COVID-19 it may not be possible. But an initial conversation to ask any questions and ensure your story is heard should be done as soon as possible. You might need your private detective to testify in criminal or civil court. You want to make sure your PI is a reputable representative of your case. Remember, you are the client, and the private detective should be trying to win you as a client. You need to find a person that you trust. After all, you will have to share sensitive information with him or her. Trust your gut feeling on this one. If something about the private investigator seems off, thank them for their time and keep looking for a better fit.

Tennessee makes it easy to ensure your PI is licensed and still in good standing. The TN website has the option for anyone to search and verify an Investigator license and Investigations company. This quick search should help you make an informed decision. 

Hiring a PI is a big decision and you don’t want to waste your time or money. As a client doing a little more research can save you hundreds of dollars. Covert Results ensures we are completely transparent with any potential client. We keep an easy to navigate website with all pertinent information as accessible as possible.
