Are private investigators skip tracers? Or should I use a process server?


In our experience, a doctor is a doctor, and a mechanic is a mechanic, and you wouldn’t want your mechanic to perform surgery on you. IN the same sense you would not want a company who is not a skip trace company with licensed private investigators working on your file. We hear all too often individuals and companies who use process servers and find that the process server was not able to complete the skip trace in Canada.
