There are many private investigators that you can hire in the Cardiff area, however most of these are small businesses with small teams. Sometimes this can work, however private investigation is an area that sometimes requires vast resources. It’s quite common for an investigation to start in Cardiff and progress to other cities in the UK. If this happens with a smaller detective agency you will get charged for travelling expenses.

Travelling expenses can eat up your entire budget for investigative services very quickly, this means that your problem goes unsolved and you don’t have a solution while being out of pocket.

Bond Rees on the other hand has a vast network of private investigators that can be called upon right away. Bond Rees don’t charge you for travelling and can use all of your budget on the things that are going to get you results.

Do I really need a private investigator?

Some problems can be fixed themselves, but for complex problems where any type of surveillance is concerned then we would recomend leaving the investigation to the experts.

Private investigators can access databases that you may not know about, can go around door to door looking for evidence and can track someone down from anywhere in the country within a few days.

Private investigation is an unregulated field so anyone can become one, so when you choose a private detective for your problem be sure to choose one that has experience in the job at hand.

If you do decide to take on an investigation yourself you may cause errors in evidence collecting which could get your whole case thrown out if it ever went to court. You may also put yourself in danger. Let’s say you suspect a partner of cheating and decide to follow them, you may confirm your suspicions but in the heat of the moment where emotions are flying high you could commit a crime by being violent or violence could happen to you.

Hire a private detective in Cardiff. We offer tracing, surveillance on cheating husbands, background checks, and asset tracking.

Hiring a private investigator is going to get rid of both these problems as we understand the importance of evidence collection. We also know that collecting evidence of cheating partners and showing it to you at a later date is still going to cause a wide range of emotions but at least you will be able to handle these emotions better while not being in the situation.

Untrained people doing their own investigations is also going to waste a lot of time. When people think of private investigators they think of movies and how cool it looks to be a “private eye” but the truth is, being a private investigator isn’t as glamorous as the movies make out. Often private detectives will have to spend their times in unmarked vans in the freezing cold for hours on end waiting to catch a glimpse of someone for 30 seconds.

If you don’t want to waste your time sitting in the cold, call our investigation team today.

Private Investigator Cardiff Case Study: Benefits Cheat Surveillance

Location: Cardiff & Radyr, June 2019

The Brief

Our Cardiff-based PI team were hired for a benefits fraud investigation job by a payroll company. The job was to undertake surveillance on one of its employees; a woman based in Radyr who was constantly off sick due to her Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The woman claimed in her sick notes that she was unable to drive, and was too unwell to work. She said she was bedridden, unable to do any washing, any household chores and couldn’t do heavy lifting because of the pain. Her company was paying her sick pay. 

How we did it

We were tasked with surveilling her for three days in and around the Cardiff area. Our operatives tailed her day and night, and gathered evidence of her movements out and about, driving, shopping, and lifting heavy items. It was evident that she was not actually unwell, and was in fact a benefits cheat. 

By the morning of day three, we had a mountain of evidence against her, including records, photos, video, and even receipts that she has placed in a supermarket bin in Radyr. The receipt showed the date, time, and the last four digits of her bank card which was further evidence of her whereabouts (Yes, our investigators are that dedicated and smart!).

The Result

The woman ended up losing her job, and the company sued her for damages via the courts. The client was extremely happy with the outcome of our investigation, especially as we only had a short space of time to compile enough evidence to compile a case in court.


Private Investigation FAQs

Here are the most frequently asked questions when it comes to our private detective services in Cardiff.

Can a private investigator break into a home and plant bugs?

What you see on TV or in movies may not be what private investigators can actually do. While some private detective agencies may think they are James Bond, more professional agencies like ourselves will abide by the laws of the country we operate in, this is to ensure all evidence is collected legally and can be used in a court of law if needed.

What happens at the end of an investigation?

At the end of the investigation you will be provided with all of the evidence collected in digital format along with the investigators notes. You can also have a paper based file delivered too at request. You can these use this evidence in any way you would like.

Can you be discreet?

Of course, being a private investigator is all about being discreet. As you can see from the ‘Radyr Benefits Cheat job case study on this page, we can be discreet when carrying out our investigation and when communicating with you. We know that some spouses want to keep their involvement with us at a minimum incase their other half finds out. If this describes your situation don’t worry we have worked with many clients who have worried about this problem in the past too.

How do I hire Bond Rees as my private investigators?

You can hire Bond Rees as your investigators by calling us, emailing us or using any other method on this site. Our investigators can get in touch with you via any method and time of your choice. We can then discuss your problems and if it’s something our investigators can help with we can advise you on a plan to proceed.

Do your Cardiff-based PIs investigate abroad also?

Yes, we operate in the UK and abroad. We have an first-class team of private investigators scattered across the globe who can take on international investigations projects. We are already working with a plethora of businesses and individuals every day who require people tracing, asset searches, bug sweeping, and investigation in Australia, Africa, USA, Europe, etc. We also offer international surveillance to catch cheating partners and benefits cheats on when away for on holiday.
