  • Employee Checks

    Have you ever wondered what your employees do while you are not there?
    Which employees are actually working, which are stopping others from working or even which are stealing from you?

    Many businesses lose valuable time and money due to unproductive employees.
    It can mean the difference between your business being a success or failure, so it is extremely important to know that your employees are working, especially when you are not there. But what are the ways that employees are unproductive? During are investigations we have found a number of ways that employees cost you money. This includes:

    But how can you monitor their activities discreetly to collect the proof you need?
    This is where we can help. We have extensive experience in discreetly finding out the truth about exactly what an employee does in a day. We use a number of techniques to achieve this, including:

  • Vehicle Tracking

    GPS, short for Global Positioning System, tracking systems are satellite-based systems used by our investigators to monitor and track the vehicles of subjects under surveillance, wherever they go.

    GPS vehicle tracking is the one of the most powerful tools for collecting evidence of whether your spouse or partner is cheating. It is an extremely cost effective, quick and discreet way to find out where your partner is going and who they are meeting.

    Our covert systems can monitor vehicle locations 24 hours a day and provide highly detailed reports of times, routes and locations. The reports we can then provide via our software can be overlayed onto maps to show routes taken, places visited and the time spent at each place.

    Whether you prove their innocence or catch them cheating it is a foolproof way to put your mind at rest and allow you to move forward in your life.

    We can get you the information you need utilising one of the most cost effective methods of tracking for your needs.

  • REPOSSESSIONS

    VEHICLE REPOSSESSIONS

    Forced, or voluntary, surrender of a vehicle as a result of the customer's failure to pay is where our services apply. Our main objective is to recover your asset quickly and promptly and deliver it to your chosen destination.

    Implementing our investigation background enables us to assist in the location of assets and then the recovery in a prompt and efficient manner. Vehicle repossession integrates well with the other services we provide giving us a clear advantage.

    We undertake instructions from major financial institutions recovering your assets within specified time frames.

    PROPERTY REPOSSESSIONS

    We will attend at the repossession address with a bailiff if required and act on your behalf. We will manage the process of arranging a locksmith to be in attendance to change the locks to ensure the property remains secure. We will arrange for a plumber to attend to drain down the hot and cold water systems and readings will be taken of all utilities. We will then furnish you with a full photographic inventory of anything remaining at the address along with a complete report on the internal and external condition of the property.

    Any property remaining in the premises will be documented and photographed as will any damage sustained to the property or vehicle.

    Our skills, knowledge and experience are used to track down any evasive debtors to assist in the recover of the goods or the property at a very reasonable rate.

    we can assist in the recovery of the above as and when the relevant Court Order has been issued by an appointed bailiff.

  • Serving Papers

    We make the service of legal papers in the UK a simple and cost effective process.
    We aim attend the address within 48 hours of receiving the papers. We usually serve papers in the UK for a Fixed Fee.

    We can also attend the same day as receipt for urgent matters.
    Normally we will attend the address and serve the papers for an agreed fixed fee, returning proof of service to you once the job has been completed along with a report.

    We serve every type of process including:

  • Alcohol and Drug Testing

    Covert testing

    Cunningham Investigations provide a service that allows employers to covertly establish whether drugs are being used at the workplace.

    Using reliable equipment our operatives can attend the workplace and test areas of concern where drugs may have been consumed. This can be done out of office hours if necessary, allowing the employer to remain covert. The results of the tests are almost instant and can be a valuable tool for further Investigation.

    Evidence of such use is recorded and documented in a forensic manner and advice given as to how the user may be identified or approached.

    Drug and Alcohol Testing

    Many companies have a drug and alcohol testing policy in their staff handbooks, but few implement screening. This can be because they are relying on the threat of the policy to deter such activities and/because they have no idea how to go about undertaking a screening process and what to do with the implications. Random drug testing has improved significantly in recent years and the development of saliva based drug testing equipment to conduct on the spot testing can now be used. This also removes the need to have same sex sample takers and enables the whole process of testing to be observed by an independent witness. All of our drug & alcohol tests are CE, FDA, ISO & TUV quality approved.

    If your company doesn't wish to introduce a full random drug and alcohol testing strategy, it can be a prudent move to have testing available to call in when you may suspect a problem, such as accident or incident based testing to rule in or out any grounds where a suspicion is raised that a person is unfit to undertake their duties due to drinking at work or drug misuse. Additionally some of our clients have started to insist any new employee's submit to either a random Drug and Alcohol test during their probation period or as part of their final selection process before a job offer is made.

    The testing kits we use can screen your staff for:

  • Tracing Debtors

    When it becomes necessary to hire someone to locate debtors and absconders we at Cunningham Investigations understand that recovering the debts owed in a quick and efficient manner in essential. We know that in business and in personal matters unpaid debts can be crippling. Our debtor tracing service can identify, track down and find a missing debtor quickly and efficiently, assisting you in
    the pursuit of owed debts.

    Our bespoke packages can also include debt recovery and debt collection, depending on your business requirements.

    All searches are performed quickly, discreetly and in the strictest confidence - The person will not know a trace has been performed

    Once we have completed your trace successfully you will receive a written report that including the subject's confirmed current address and any related information we have gathered in our enquiry. We are also able to provide employment details and other specialist information, on request.

  • Home-buyer Area Checks

    When buying your new home there are lots of things to consider. Is the house the right size? Is the location perfect for you? Are the transport links good? Are the new schools up to the standard that you expect for your children? Having gone through your own personal check list of things you require for the new house, have you considered the actual area itself you are going to be living in?

    The perfect house in what you think is the perfect location could be harbouring some dark secrets. You must be aware when making potentially the biggest purchase of your life that the structure of your new surroundings is up to the standard of the structure of the property.

    Investigators carry out face-to-face interviews with residents

  • Surveillance

    What is surveillance? Surveillance is the art of watching someone, some place, or some object in order to document and identify any contact, activities and whereabouts.

    When are surveillance services useful? Surveillance can be very useful in a wide variety of circumstances the following are some common reasons to carry out surveillance.

    Using the most advanced technology, and some of the best surveillance equipment available, our private investigators are able to carry out effective surveillance from either moving vehicles, on foot surveillance, and covert close proximity surveillance in buildings or bars / clubs etc (using hidden cameras).

    Whatever your needs, we will provide you with the information you need and maintain regular contact to update you with the latest information throughout any continued period of surveillance.

  • Matrimonial and Relationship

    Trust is one of the foundation stones of any relationship; unfortunately that trust is sometimes betrayed. We will help you get to the truth of a situation, helping you to make an informed decision.

    Watch for some of the potential infidelity signs:

    An investigation can generally either restore confidence in you and your partners relationship, or it can at least give you the facts to put you in control and to choose with confidence whatever action you may wish to take towards your future.

  • Social Media Searches

    Are people talking about you or your company in a negative way? Why is it dangerous? Angry clients distribute information about your company. If these negative comments reach your potential customers they will never become your clients.

    Company reputation is very important. Eventually it results in brand trust and sales. So it is vital to know and manage what people are talking about your company.
