  • Land/Shallow Water Search

Cost For My Service

I have a required local call out fee of $25 (payable whether or not item is found) . This fee is due upon arrival at your location and is used to cover gas & expenses. For property markers There is a $25 per marker charge in addition to the local call out fee. For lost items, I work on a reward basis, that means you pay what it's worth to you / what you can afford to have me find your lost item.

Search Types

I search yards, gardens, parks, fields, woods, campgrounds, farms, caves, beaches, lakes, streams, in water up to 3ft deep.

Search Locations

Within 30 miles of Fairfax County. I’ll attempt to search almost anywhere where metal detecting is allowed.
