Cost For My Service

All Recoveries are on a REWARD System - so we DO ask for a reward based on what the lost item is worth to you and what you can afford. I charge a $35 call out fee to search for your lost item.

All travel and incidental fees will be agreed upon prior to rendering any services.

I accept PayPal and Venmo for payments.

We gladly accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Discover or Cash.

Call us as soon as you can! As much as you may want to, it’s best not to dig through the sand (it can dislodge, sink or even move your item making it more difficult to find). Be aware that people may have seen that you’ve lost something valuable and they may return when you leave, so time is of the essence! Be sure you only reveal the location of your valued item to a trusted source - the sooner you call us, the better our chance to successfully recover your lost treasure!

  • Steve is a very wonderful person and what he does is absolutely amazing! (2021)

    On September 7th I took my children to the beach after work for just a relaxing evening. The waves were ruff but with kids they insisted we get in so I followed and ended up being knocked down by a wave, I quickly put my hand down to stop myself from taking my child down with me and I felt my ring slip off my finger. I was devastated! I found and gentleman who was detecting a little further down and asked for his help, he immediately told me about Steve at Crystal Coast Ring Finders. I looked it up on facebook and called. Steve was so very nice and told me he would be out shortly to start the search for my ring and he did as he said. He kept in touch and made sure I knew he was still looking. After a month I had given up hope on ever seeing my ring again. Steve reached out to me on the 9th and asked if I could fill his paperwork out so he could keep my information on file. Monday October 11th he walked into my work and I filled out tge paperwork and he handed me his card. To my surprise when I turned it over was my ring!! Tears of joy started streaming from my eyes! Steve is a very wonderful person and what he does is absolutely amazing! If you are ever in the area and lose a prized position I definitely recommend Steve with Crystal Coast Ring Finders!!

    Thanks again, you are absolutely amazing!

    Steven was amazing. I called him at 6:30pm on a Sunday. He made the 1hr drive to Topsail and was here by 8:00 the same evening…and found the ring within 10 minutes of searching! Because of him I did get to sleep indoors that night. Thank you again

  • Thanks again, Steven. I appreciate what you did for me! (2021)

    I found Steven's listing on theringfinders.com, and immediately texted him to see if he would be able to look for my ring. Steven responded quickly, and was able to immediately go to the beach I was at to search in the target area I had provided. He communicated frequently with me and provided updates throughout the search process. Steven was persistent in his search, and was able to recover my ring for me. He shipped it the next day and provided a copy of the receipt and tracking number. He continued to check in with me throughout the next several days to make sure I had received my ring. Steven went above and beyond in his recovery efforts, and I appreciate everything he did to help me out.

    Thanks again, Steven. I appreciate what you did for me!

  • I'd highly, highly recommend getting in touch with him to help find lost items! (2020)

    Item

    It would be hard to find a more responsive and kind metal detectorist than Steve. I contacted him after losing my husband's wedding ring and, within a day, he was on the job. Not only did he find the ring, but he drove a long way to return it to us! An added special was a lesson in metal detecting that he gave to me and my family on one of our return trips to the beach. In short, I'd highly, highly recommend getting in touch with him to help find lost items!
