Two loss adjusters have set up a claims consultancy to provide a range of services to brokers, insurers and the public.

Richard Knibb and Rod Smith are both former loss adjusters. Knibb spent 26 years with McLaren's, and Smith ran his own loss adjusting company before moving to PCS.

The Claims Consultancy will offer disaster management assistance, dealing with all aspects of building and machinery repair and post-loss customer liaison.

It will also offer training, claim audits and an economic recovery service.

Knibb said: “Our aim is to provide a wide range of claim-related services, including the handling and presentation of claims. We believe that our approach is completely different from most others active in this sector.”

The company has already received its first customer, via brokers John Eke and partners.
