You might think that private investigators are only characters from hard boiled American detective crime fiction, but the truth is that they are much more common than you might think! Sure, real life private investigators might not be quite as cool and mysterious as Hollywood makes them out to be, but they still do important work across communities in all corners of the country and globe.


Here at Vision Surveillance, we take on lots of different cases for lots of different reasons, some that you might be familiar with and others that you might not. If you are going through your own unfortunate or problematic situation, then it might be time to give us a call. Here are some common signs that it is time to call a private investigator.


  • When you have a mystery that you need to solve, that the local services are no longer classing as a priority. If police deem a loved one to be safe and simply not present, or have no further leads, they will move on to other cases. Hiring a private investigator is the only way to keep someone on the trail when the other avenues have been explored.
  • If you suspect that you are being cheated on in a relationship, a private investigator can be used to gather information that will either confirm or allay your suspicions. This is the kind of task that needs detective work but will obviously never be taken up by the police!
  • If you are close to making a big, life changing business transaction, then you can hire a private investigator to do a thorough background search to make sure that there are no unforeseen circumstances or hidden factors in the deal.
  • A private investigator can be put to good use if you have long lost family members that you would like to track down. Starting from something as simple as a Facebook profile or a name can turn into a meeting and hopefully the start of a new relationship.


So, if you think that a private investigator might be able to help you out, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us or give us a call. A member of the trained and experienced team will always be on and to take down your details and discuss the intricacies of your situation. We handle every enquiry with great discretion.
