About Us

The Thing Detectives specialise in finding the rare, obscure and downright unusual.

We can also provide research, find people, in fact you name it… the Thing Detectives have probably done it (although we’re still patiently waiting for a case involving a mysterious gold statue or a glowing ruby).

Check out our past cases to see the scope of our service. The Thing Detectives (formerly known as e-seek, when it all began back in 2003) provide a personal service that we are extremely proud of.

We are currently based in Liverpool but have been fortunate to help people all over the world.
