  • Land/Shallow Water Search

Cost For My Service

I have a required local call out fee of $25 (payable whether item is found or not). This fee is due upon arrival at your location and is used to cover gas, tolls, & expenses. 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. Treasure research and hunting services are also available.

Search Types

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

Search Locations

All of Northern Virginia. I’ll attempt to search almost anywhere where metal detecting is allowed.
