Any dangers in pulling a well pipe, "packer system"? cost?

I have a deep well jet pump, packer system. I've got the first 17' pipe pulled out and disconnected and have the next 17' section pulled out about 7'. But now it seems to be binding on the leathers (my guess, and dang, so close to having it all out). I've been using a come along, but thats not doing it anymore.

So I'm at the point of hiring it out. I was told that they bump it out, not just increasing tension upward. Seems simple enough.

Seems like that should that be a one hour charge, since I have the pipe above ground already. But then again I have no clue.

Is there any danger that they might break the pipe or casing or cause other significant damage? Seems like the only thing that might break would be the leathers, which doesn't seem like a big deal. ANY advice GREATLY appreciated. TIA.

There's always the danger of pipes breaking when they're being pulled out of the well.
The leathers on the packer are what seals the packer to the well casing. However, the packer itself isn't much smaller than the well casing, which makes it susceptable to hanging up on the casing couplings, scale deposites, etc.
The well company should have the equipment to "work" the piping up and down until it comes out. I wouldn't attempt to put a time frame on that. Better they take their time and get a good pull, rather than hurry and break the pipe and have to go after it with other tooling, which gets expensive.
