Cost For My Service

I work on a voluntary reward basis…. what you can afford.

*** You only reward me if the lost item is found. ***

I have a call-out fee of $35 minimum to cover fuel and vehicle expenses and 1 hour of search time. This fee is charged even if the lost item is not recovered.

Searches conducted beyond my local area of Arlington Heights 60004, 60005 of more than a half-hour drive from (each way ) may incur additional travel costs, which will be discussed and agreed upon in advance.

Search Types

My metal detecting equipment and experience allows me to search most outdoor locations, including yards, private land ,estate grounds,school grounds,beaches, parks, woods (without excessive underbrush) campgrounds/RV parks, and small streams (water depth of about 12 inches). If the lost item is on private property, permission to search will be needed.

The detection equipment I use is capable of locating lost metallic items such as jewelry, watches, keys, gold, silver, hearing aids, buried metal items and iron (survey markers) at depths of up to 6-8 inches,

If a lost item is on private property or on State land, it may be necessary to obtain prior permission from the land owner or land authority prior to conducting a search. I am happy to assist you with this process.

Search Locations

I recover lost treasures in the Arlington Heights Ill 60004. Will travel in a 50 mile radius of my home.

Brian Goodmiller's Bio

I am a retired marketing and advertising executive.

Metal detecting started as hobby for me about six years ago as way of enjoying the great outdoors. I love to fish, hunt, kayak, sail , camping and exploring with my wife and kids — Over the years of metal detecting I went from coin and relic hunting in parks and beaches to joining a gold prospecting club that has eleven claims in Arizona. Compared to the Arizona desert searches for me any thing in Illinois is a walk in the park!

Today I enjoy seeing the joy on peoples faces when a lost treasure is found and returned to them. I am a Ringfinder.
