  • Land/Shallow Water Search

Cost For My Service

I work on a reward basis, that means you pay what it's worth to you and what you can afford to have me find your lost ring.

I have a call-out fee of $25 for some areas if the ring is not found, this covers my fuel expenses. We can discuss this when you call.

Search Types

Will search land and shallow (water up to 5 ft). Ex: Beaches and parks, yards, commercial and private property with written permission. Items lost on Private Property or State Land will require prior permission from the landowner or governing authority prior to conducting a search. Houses that are in foreclosure must have permission from the bank or Titleholder.

Search Locations

Rockford, Elgin & surrounding areas. Will travel outside of these areas if needed, call to make arrangements.

Tim Blank's Bio

Married with 2 boys. I've been metal detecting since 2009 and have come to absolutely love the hobby. I primarily use, top of the line, Minelab metal detecting equipment. As of 2019, the thrill of the hunt has taken me to 11 states and 2 countries, England and Jamaica. During the day I'm an I.U.O.E. Local 150 Operating Engineer, so playing in the dirt is something I enjoy and am good at. I'm excited and looking forward to having the opportunity to help you recover your lost item.

Don't wait! Call as soon as possible!

    Tim is the man! He did in less than a minute what I had spent hours trying to do. I honestly cried tears of joy when he found my wedding ring. I’m so thankful I found him, and will be recommending his services to any of my family and friends that could need them.
