Cost For My Service

I work on a reward basis, which means you pay what the service is worth to you and what you can afford.

I have a call out fee of $20 for reasonably near-by areas if the item is not found to cover my fuel expenses. We can discuss this when you call.

I’m happy to do insurance recoveries.

Search Types

I can search pretty much any terrain, including grass, dirt, sand, and snow. I’m a certified scuba diver, so I can do water recoveries. We’ll need to get permission for me to search on private property.

Search Locations

Utah county, Salt Lake County, and surrounding areas. I love metal detecting so much that I’m willing to drive. Call me and let’s talk.

Larry Fluckiger's Bio

I always feel sad when I hear that someone has lost something valuable to them. I love metal detecting and helping people find lost items that they cherish. I have hundreds of hours of experience in all types of terrain. I have high-quality equipment that I know very well. If your item can be found, I can recover it for you.
