Our Asset Recovery Services

Our primary focus during asset recovery investigations is to investigate and recover stolen or damaged property. This includes working with all types of equipment and goods such as:

  • Heavy Equipment

  • Construction Equipment

  • Semi Tractor Trailers

  • Boats

  • Aircraft

  • Motor Homes

  • Vehicles

  • And More

During many asset recovery investigations, the insurance company will first conduct a thorough investigation or perform due diligence before determining a settlement. This process involves gathering as much information as possible from all available sources. Our private investigators assists the insurance company during this process by working with the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) Manager and the Claims Handler to collect information regarding stolen and damaged property. Our goal when working with insurance companies for asset recovery is to determine the circumstances surrounding a case and locate the stolen property.

Cargo Theft Investigations & Asset Recovery

This specific branch of asset recovery deals with recovering stolen goods or cargo for the trucking and freight industry. For example, a semi trailer may be broken into and the expensive cargo removed for illegal sale. In other asset recovery situations, the entire semi truck and trailer are stolen together and must be located and recovered.

Our private investigators can work closely with insurance companies or trucking and freight transportation companies during these cargo theft asset recovery investigations. Our primary goals will be to determine what happened to the freight and to locate the stolen freight.

Other Types of Asset Recovery Investigations

While our private investigators primarily work with insurance companies to locate lost goods during asset recovery investigations, we can also work with a variety of other types of clients on a variety of cases. During any asset recovery investigation, our main goals are always to determine what happened to the property, money, or other goods and to locate this stolen property in order to return it to its rightful owner.
