    Skip Tracking FAQ’s

    What Is Skip Tracing?

    Skip Tracing is the service of locating an address for a witness, beneficiary or missing person who has moved or “skipped” from an address. Skip Tracing is conducted to locate persons for debt and insurance recoveries and to serve legal documents.

    Skip Tracing is a traditional term used within the debt collection industry, with industries such as private investigations these days opting to refer to their service as Location Enquiries or People (Skip) Tracing.

    How Is Skip Tracing and People Tracing Done?

    Skip tracing or alternatively people tracing is an investigative process that involves conducting electronic database and open source online information searches, as well as telephone and in-person enquiries to gather evidence to confirm a person’s new contact address. Depending upon the matter, a skip tracer may conduct telephone and in-person enquiries covertly or overtly.

    Many databases are available to skip tracers and licenced private investigators that include address and telephone number histories and assist with locating a person’s current address.

    The success of a skip trace will come down to the skip tracer’s ability to source, interpret and filter information, and their investigative ability to utilise that information to confirm an address.

    How Long Does Skip Tracing Take?

    The turnaround time of a skip trace will depend on the complexity of the matter. As a guide, Sharmans will return a skip trace report to a client on average within 14 days, however in most cases a report is provided in under 10 days.

    Sharmans have Urgent Skip Trace options where a report can be returned that same day.

    How much does Skip Tracing Cost?

    The cost of a skip trace will depend on several factors, but as a guide, the average cost of a comprehensive skip trace in Australia is approximately $350 – $500.
