I've accidently booked an urgent service and by booking is of a non urgent nature
If you've made a booking that is not of an urgent nature, it is very important to reply to the text saying that the booking is not of an urgent nature and explain the reason why.

if the service is not complete in organising a contactor to visit your property, you may be entitled to a partial refund or even a refund of good will.
By explaining your booking is not of an urgent nature, you may be able to save some money.
How have I managed to agree to the terms by phone without acknowledging the terms?
Because our services is of an off-premises contract, we rely on our advertising to give the information to guide our clients to the terms that our clients agree to before making contact with us.
This means that the terms have not been accepted verbally and what EPHG do explain of over the phone is given clearly and we try to send confirmation of the booking by text or by email.
How do I cancel?
As we're an emergency service dealing with urgent repairs, you can not cancel the complete contract under the consumer protection section 28, but we do accept that if the service is not complete, we can offer either a partial refund of £30 or a gesture of good will.
The refund is only if the service is incomplete and we haven't organised a contractor.
By the time of EPHG sending the contractor your detials being of an urgent service, the consumer loses the full entitlements to any refund from EPHG, however, if the contractor agrees to not charge EPHG the inconvenience fee, it is possible under the descretion of EPHG that we could offer a gesture of good will.
