Benefits of hiring a private investigator

There is a wide range of reasons that individuals or businesses require investigation of some form into another person or group.

You may be a private individual who needs to know more about a person in your life or the life of someone you care about. 

You might want to find out if your spouse is playing away or if your children are having contact with an undesirable new partner that your ex is in a relationship with now.

You could be owed money and need to track down the person to address your loss, or you might have lost touch with a loved one and want to find them to regain contact.

Hiring a professional private investigator prevents risk or comeback for you or your business whilst also ensuring that the right results are achieved in the most expedient manner.

Private investigators have access to software and information not available within the public domain meaning that they can find out facts about a person that would never usually be shared.

Private investigators are fully trained and experienced in using skills and techniques that enable discreet and covert investigation into another person without them knowing until it is too late.

Private Investigator Case Study: The Ex-Wife & The Angry Spouse

Location: Bristol

What we did

We were hired by a woman in Portishead to locate her ex-partner in the centre of Bristol. Their relationship had ended, and he moved in with a new partner, taking all of the woman’s belongings with him. He had stolen many personal belongings from the client, and she was unable to contact or find him to retrieve her possessions. The client contacted Bond Rees to locate her ex-partner and escort her to confront him, in hopes of regaining her possessions before involving the police.  

How we did it

Our trained operative located the ex-partner’s new address near Clifton Bridge, and accompanied the client to his flat. He was not pleased to see her, and the situation escalated, turning violent. The new partner approached the client and our operative with a 12-inch kitchen knife. Fortunately, our operative was ex-military so he had been trained in negotiation and had been in contact with the police, and an officer was on the phone during the confrontation. Our operative was able to keep the client and the ex-partner safe and calm while the police arrived on the scene. 


The job was successfully completed, as we had located the new address in Bristol and the client was able to recover her belongings, and avoid being injured.
