Ashworth Mairs and The Claims People have been dropped from Liverpool Victoria's loss adjusting panel.

Davies Group Partnership will become the insurer's sole supplier for general loss adjusting services, with home insurance repair provider Homeserve offering a building repair service to customers.

David Mansfield, partner at Davies Group, said: "We have invested heavily in technology particularly our digital pen programme which combined with our skills set will enable us to provide a first class loss adjusting service".

Ashworth Mairs confirmed its business with Liverpool Victoria was now in "run-off". Managing director Kevin Wood said: "We still have work in progress as we were the loss adjustor on their contents business. We have some larger claims that have quite a long tail."

The Claims People said its three-year deal with Liverpool Victoria expired at the end of 2005.
