Cost For My Service

I work on a reward basis. You pay what you think it is worth to you and what you can afford. I charge a base fee for gas depending how far I must drive starting at $25.00 for those within approximately 15 miles of my home. I will tell you how much before I come out.

If we are searching for buried treasure we can negotiate terms prior to me coming out. I do historical searches as well on your property, the terms of which can be negotiated.

Search Types

I can detect your yard, fields, parks, woods, beach and shallow water. I can detect in snow but cannot dig frozen ground. If it is a recent loss digging is not an issue. I can search private property but only if you obtain the owners permission in writing

Search Locations

I can search from the Saratoga, NY area and east throughout Washington County, NY and all of mid to southern Vermont as well as north western Massachusetts. I will consider other areas as well.

Marks Detecting's Bio

I have over 20 years of experience and hundreds of hours out on the hunt. I have hunted all of the New England states and New York. Hunting for treasure or even “just looking for things” has always been in my blood. When I was ten years old way back in the 1960’s I begged my dad for a metal detector. He bought it for me and I hunted our back yard to death. The machine eventually broke and I stopped hunting. I began hunting again 21 years ago. I wished I had never stopped.

I derive great pleasure from making people happy and re-uniting people with their lost items. It is always an exciting challenge for me. Every situation is unique and every story is different. I will listen to your story and give you an honest assessment. The sooner you call the better. Objects just become more lost the longer you wait.
