Cost For My Service

My services are on a reward basis, meaning I will accept any gratuity you feel is appropriate for my time and effort to locate your item. As a long-time supporter of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 15% of the gratuity will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN.

If your item is not found a reimbursement for my commuting expenses is appreciated for any travel beyond the immediate Quad Cities area (Bettendorf, Davenport, Moline, and Rock Island).

Search Types

I search parks, athletic fields, yards, private and public properties (with permission), old home sites, old school sites, beaches, wade-water up to 5’ in depth.

Note: Metal detecting in Iowa State or County parks are subject to the provisions of Iowa Code Chapter 644. In order for me to search for your items in a State or County park a written approval must be granted before metal detector use may begin in these areas.

Items that I am most generally called to look for include jewelry (rings, necklaces, watches etc.), keys and key fobs, coins, gold, silver, survey markers, cell phones, heirlooms, relics, etc. Basically, if the item is metal and you need to find it then I am the right man for the job.

Also, if you feel there is hidden treasure on your property and you would like to discuss a search, please give me a call.

Lastly, relative to my past law enforcement experience I am willing to assist local police/authorities in evidence recovery at crime scenes to include weapons, shell casings, or any metallic objects pertinent to the investigation.

Search Locations

Primarily the Quad-Cities area (Bettendorf, Davenport, Moline, Rock Island).

Other areas include: Eastern Iowa, Western Illinois, and Southwestern Wisconsin within 100 miles of the Quad Cities. However, I am willing to travel beyond these areas on a case-by-case basis. Contact me to discuss travel details.

Michael Limberg's Bio

I have always enjoyed helping people and I am no stranger to community service and volunteerism. I have been a Cub Scout den leader, a Little League baseball coach, a volunteer fire fighter, a reserve Sheriff’s deputy, a Rotary International member, a Lions International member, as well as serving in local government and on several County boards and committees.

I started metal detecting in the 1970’s and recently developed a newfound love of the hobby. I look forward to reuniting people with their lost valuables as many of these items hold more sentimental value to the person than any monetary amount that is placed on it. I want to help you recover what is very special to YOU!

I own several state of the art metal detectors. While there are no guarantees of recovery, I am confident and mission driven so you can expect the very best of my efforts. Being a business owner, (and my own boss), I enjoy a flexible schedule. I will help in any way that I can and I am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding my services. If I don't answer when you call, please leave a message and I will call you back as soon as possible.
