Isaac’s can provide full-service packing, which means we take care of all packing needs, partial packing services, unpacking services and self-packing services, where we provide the packing materials for you to pack your belongings in yourself.

We charge by the hour, depending on the number of packers your goods will require. Our consultant will visit and work with you to understand what needs to get packed and how much you have. Usually we will plan so that packing will be done in one day.

We provide the basic $.60 per pound coverage with every move, meaning if an item weighs 110 pounds and it gets damaged, you will receive $60.00. We also offer comprehensive coverage and full replacement valuation with various deductibles.
