Cost For My Service

I have a $25.00 call out fee to help cover fuel cost, and my service is on a reward basis. This means you pay what you think it was worth to find your lost item. If I cannot find your item then no fee will be expected but the call out fee.

Search Types

Lost rings, jewelry, and keys. Lost family heirlooms, estate searches, and any lost metallic valuables. I search yards, parks, old home sites, athletic fields, gardens etc... If the search is on private property, then you must obtain permission beforehand. If the search is on national or state park grounds, metal detecting there is prohibited, but the park services are usually understanding about this and will typically grant permission when asked beforehand. I can search shallow water in Lakes & Rivers up to 4 feet deep.

Search Locations

Bryson City, NC and surrounding areas.

Andy Turbyfill's Bio

I’ve lived in Western North Carolina for the past 30 years. My wife and I have been married for 28 years and we have two children, both married. I have been seriously detecting for over 6 years and enjoy the hobby very much. I have helped find jewelry for my friends and family and I decided to join Ring Finders so I could help others recover their valuables and memories. There is nothing more satisfying than to be able to reconnect an owner with their lost memory or keep sake.

    I got a call from a lady who needed help finding her wedding set. Let’s just say it wound up in a grassy ravine outside of a Walmart. No judgement here, it happens all the time.  It sounded pretty cut and dry and it didn’t look like a difficult place to hunt so the next […]
