You are certainly not the cheapest but you are the best, I had gone through many companies trying to find answers but like they say, buy cheap and buy twice. After months and months we spoke with tio square over the phone and they were on the phone for about 30 minutes discussing everything they really cared and so I went ahead and hired them. I am very impressed since besides hiring other agencies, I looked myself and could not find him, they helped me in just a few days. Thanks times a million. read lessEdI has a custody thing involving a person who was not supposed to live there living there, and they helped... read moreI has a custody thing involving a person who was not supposed to live there living there, and they helped me very well what I needed.

A Private Investigator, also referred to as a Private Eye or Private Detective, is an individual or a group of Licensed Professionals hired to gather evidence on personal or business matters as well as ongoing legal and criminal proceedings. They are most commonly hired for surveillance services (infidelity, insurance, missing persons), to locate records or conduct thorough background researches. Private Investigators also locate hard to find subjects, conduct thorough interviews, and gather evidence for legal proceedings.
While searching for a Private Investigator to hire in New York City, you might be surprised to find that there isn’t a specific industry-wide rate. Prices often depend on which services you request, difficulty in obtaining the evidence, and expenses involved. Here is a brief explanation of Private Investigator rates:
Hourly rates: Hourly rates for a Private Investigator in the New York area vary depending on the specific type of investigation and difficulty in executing the request. Most investigators will offer a block discount if you book several hours at once, which is recommended when ordering surveillance services.
Retainers: A retainer is a down payment for an investigator’s work. They can vary based on your needs. Most Private Investigators will charge against your retainer, and refund any unused amount.
Expenses: Investigators can also incur expenses while they are engaged in following the target of the investigation, and some of the most common expenses are mileage, tolls and parking related fees.
Additional and Unforeseen Expenses: Your investigator will contact you prior to proceeding with additional expenses, such as exceeding the budgeted time limit due to an active target, or any other expense that might arise in the execution of the investigation.
Yes. To conduct investigations in the state of New York, you must be licensed by the New York State Department of State, and maintain a bond. Our License number is 11000208411, and we are bonded.

TIO Square Inc. provides investigation services in New York City and other locations around the New York area, including Long Island and Westchester. Cost of services depend on the specific scope of the project and the hours estimated. Our the New York State Department of State provides the license required for PI companies in New York. Many factors are taken into the estimated cost for investigations provided to our client, such as travel cost, and hourly rates.
Yes. Sometimes it is important to seek the assistance of the local police department, to investigate criminal cases or for further information on a current ongoing case. Police departments in New York City often offer a great amount of help and information to investigators, and the general public, needed for cases under investigation. An example is in the case of a vehicle accident, where it would be advantageous to speak with the responding police officers who were present at the scene on the date of loss, even if the accident occurred months ago, or even a few years back.
Although other PI companies in New York offer security guard services, we currently do not offer security guard coverage or training. See our website for additional information if you need assistance with shrinkage, or need assistance with suspected employee theft cases. To investigate theft cases we recommend undercover investigations. Contact us for more details.
We currently do not provide security guard license training services. See our website blog for additional information on obtaining a New York State (and other states) PI License.
