A fence too high!

It's been a busy week. The storms made it even busier. I now have more than enough fencing repairs to last me a lifetime. Well, at least enough for a couple of weeks.
There have been some guys out there quoting near black market prices. One customer I went to had been quoted £180.00 - wait for this - to have a single 6' X 6' fence panel slid back into its existing concrete posts !!!!!! They didn't even have to replace the panel with a new one. That type of fence panel can be put into place by two people in about 2 minutes. You go figure out the hourly rate. Now I want to make it clear, I have absolutely no problems with someone making a very healthy profit for services rendered, but, and it's a big but; please draw the line at profiteering. Leave that sort of behaviour to bankers and other such "professionals". That's my rant for the day done.
