Private Investigator Cost South Africa
How much does a private investigator cost in South Africa? No matter how big or small the investigation. Cost and fee structures are talk through in the initial fact-finding meeting. We look at the amount of time, planning and urgency needed to conduct the investigation. Rates also vary by location and where the private investigator is from. It’s often required that the investigator must travel to conduct the investigation for the client. Travelling, accommodation, flights and car rental are often required and can be expensive. In most cases the private investigator will bill by the hour and charge a mileage fee. A retainer or deposit is often required to secure the mandate. Another cost factor is when a second private investigator comes on board. The hourly rate is then doubled. Most often a client will need 2 investigators working as partners and only pay a flat hourly rate.
