Private Investigators - How to choose a Private Detective Part 2

Article Published:Apr 23

When choosing a private detective company in South Africa for an investigation you need assistance with, it may be harder than you initially thought it would be when it comes to actually choosing the right private investigator for you.

Apart from the qualities mentioned in the previous article, private detectives in South Africa that actively take part in community projects through sponsorships and support is certainly worth exploring when comparing private investigator companies.

Another important factor one should consider before appointing a private investigation company in South Africa is to determine how much industry experience they have. A private detective with extensive experience should naturally be chosen above one that does not have the knowledge of this highly skilled profession.

The nature of the investigation you require will also influence which private investigation company in South Africa you decide to utilise. One will obviously not ask assistance on a matter from a private detective company which does not offer the service you require or does not have the expertise you require for the investigation at hand. For example, you would not ask a pi in South Africa to assist you with a high profile fraud investigation when the investigation company specialises in missing persons.

An investigator company that discusses the legal issues or matters pertaining to your investigation and takes pride in adhering to the laws and regulations of the country or countries where the investigation will take place is certainly a must.

Lastly - trust your gut or intuition. This is especially so when it comes to more sensitive criminal investigations when the investigation process may be an extremely painful and emotional time for you and your loved ones. Choose a private investigator company in South Africa that have private detectives that show compassion where necessary yet are still able to get the job done professionally and efficiently.
