Q:How much will an investigation cost me?

$75 an hour - minimum 4 hour charge out - per investigator/operative used on the surveillance.

$0.90 per kilometre driven. 

Due to the variables involved in an investigation and the outcomes sought it is impossible to calculate an exact figure to complete an entire investigation.

Investigations require a minimum of (1) investigator and more often than not require (2) investigators to work together to complete a successful investigation.

Sometimes even more investigators are required and the costs rise consequently per investigator used.

We can produce some results for under $400 and on other occasions costs will be well in excess of this figure.

It really is a time based exercise until the evidence required is obtained. With our Investigations, you will know that we are actually doing what we are paid to do, often as you sleep at night, with our integrity footage, which proves where we are supposed to be when we say we are!

Q: What exactly is covert surveillance investigation?

This is the art of following a subject (person of interest) and documenting what they do and who they meet without them knowing the are under surveillance and reporting back to the client with video evidence captured.

Q: Will my partner know if i have hired a surveillance investigation into them?

In the very unlikely event that you are ever questioned-you should never tell your partner that they are under investigation, as this will clearly negatively impact the investigation.

Whilst it seems obvious, for a whole host of reasons, your partner should also never be alerted to the fact that you have them under surveillance.

Our surveillance Investigation team are experts at blending into the background and remaining unnoticed and have been trained specifically in this skill set, so that if your partner was ever suspicious, there would be no way for them to know exactly who or why they were being followed.

Sometimes it may be necessary for our surveillance team to break contact and pick up surveillance sometime later to maintain the integrity of the investigation in order to optimise the results on your behalf.

Be assured you are in safe hands with Bust A Cheat Investigations.

Q: How much notice is required before an investigation is commenced?
