Repair for K3 III hotshoe

I am looking for a reputable camera repair shop to fix a problem that I have with the hotshoe on my K3 III. The hotshoe has been compressed and is unusable. The camera doesn't seem to be suffering from any other problems and I am not sure how the hotshoe got into the state it's in as I have not to my awareness had any mishaps with the camera although I do travel a bit. I am currently located in Monmouth, Wales, UK. Thanks for any suggestions!

KEH (keh.com) provide repairs {https://www.keh.com/shop/repair} and they tend to have good reputations. I have not used them yet, but read some good thing here.

Hope that the comment may help.
