If the increase will be more than 10% of the total estimate, you may give written notice (email to suffice) within 14 calendar days to cancel this Agreement. If we do not receive notice of cancellation from you in writing within this period, the estimate will be amended as proposed. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, if it appears during progress of the Work that the estimate will be exceeded by more than 10% of the original estimate, we will notify you and will not continue with the Work unless you expressly authorise us to do so.If you have left the Vehicle with us for an estimate but have not accepted the estimate, or have refused it but have failed to collect the Vehicle, within 14 calendar days of the date of the estimate or (if later) the date of cancellation, we may charge you, at our published rates in force at the time, for the storage of the Vehicle until it is collected from you..
