Default Elite Phones and Computers repairs LG K8 query

Good morning,

I recently dropped my LG K8 into the bath by accident.

I got it out as quick as possible and left it to dry, afterwards it worked, but after a few minutes it would start flickering and the screen would go black with periodic lines flickering on and off in various colours.

I contacted the above company to enquire about a repair as it appeared to be a screen issue as everything else worked fine.

The sent me a quote of £17.50 which seemed acceptable.

At no point did they say in the various emails that there was the possibility of further charges.

SO as you can imagine I was surprised to have an email today saying the repairs were done and that it would cost an additional £120. Now bear in mind I only paid £87 for it in the first place.

I am not sure what my rights are with this as the only warning about costs is in a very small section of tthe initial email right at the bottom in about font 4-6. it is below.

Elite Phones and Computers Ltd, 190 a Church Street, Eccles Manchester M300LZ

Having a read through the T and C it does state the £17.50 is a delivery fee not the price quote. I am fairly sure in the initial message I sent to them though I asked for aq quote on repair.

I sent the message through their form. is there a way for me to obtain that message?

Have a good day,
