Cost For My Service
In most cases, I work on a reward basis. Tell me what it's worth for you to have it returned and that is our deal. Circumstance vary and a reward does not need to be a lot in some cases. Call and we can discuss your situation.
The type of search required can add significant complexity to the search. A lost item in deep water may require a prolonged dive with advanced equipment.
A call-out fee to cover some of the rolling expenses such as fuel and wear and tear is charged regardless of whether the item is found or not.
Beaches, Parks, Lakes & Yards... Shallow water searched often do not need specialized equipment. For deep water, I have extensive dive training and will do underwater searches where safety can be maintained.

Brian Spilsbury's Bio
I made my first metal detector from plans in Popular Science in the 1960's. It used a transistor radio to generate the sound, indicating metal was near. Land searches quickly evolved into underwater locating in 1970, starting with golf balls but quickly including lost golf clubs and watches that sometimes disappeared into the water hazards after a bad shot.
Since those early days, rings, bracelets, necklaces, outboard motors and boats have been located for people.
The book is still being written on what all else can located.

Vandals had cut the supporting cables and instrumention mounts rendering everything both nonfunctional but also unable to be recovered to repair it. A big recovery such as this requires some specialised equipment, good […]
I responded to a kijiji ad requesting help to locate and recover 3 stolen bikes. They were locked together near a quarry and were suspected to have been thrown off the cliff into a potentially 30 m deep section. Metal detecting equipment was not needed for this recovery as the bikes would be easily visible […]
