  • I can’t thank Steve enough for his amazing service... (2018)


    I can’t thank Steve enough for his amazing service. I have worked on the ACBP for 8 years now and have seen plenty of metal detector people but never have I spoken to them until this summer.

    Steve was searching around my beach (Columbia Place) and needed to take a break. He asked us to watch his stuff and we ended up chatting for a little bit. He told us about his recent finds and the people he has helped and even left his card with my stand partner. Little did I know, that card would come in clutch.

    Only two weeks later I lost my wedding ring (only 15 months old) on the beach in Margate. I thought I would never see it again but then I remembered Steve. My stand partner still had the number so I gave him a ring (no pun intended).

    Steve immediately picked up and told me he would hop in his car and drive the 40 minutes straight to me. I waiting patiently on the beach just hoping it would turn up. Once he arrive I directed him to the area I was sitting at the day before and he promptly (less than 30 seconds) located the ring!

    I was so elated and grateful for this great guy! I tried to reward him as best I could but he would only accept so much. Please consider Steve for any future lost items, he was a pleasure to work with.

    And I will definitely view the metal detector people differently when I see them next summer.

  • Steve is a blessing (2018)


    Steve is a blessing. He was diligent, knowledgeable, and very easy to communicate with. Above all else, he was incredibly confident. This put our anxiety at ease. He not only surprised us with my wedding ring that he found, but he offered us a ride back to our hotel. This type of personable service is unmatched, considering the ring in question was so personal. We cannot express enough gratitude to this man!
