Try BCAA. They won't tow if your car runs, but they would be perfect for a shell. :)

BCAA probably won't do it. The membership is for roadside assistance, so they tow you to a place to fix your car if it's stranded on the side of the road. Basically, they generally only tow licenced cars.

I bought a Starlet from a friend, and had to work hard to convince them to tow it to my place where I could fix it. They weren't going to do it because it wasn't licenced, and transporting shells isn't what your paying for with your membership.

All the towing companies that I know of are pretty comparable in price.

busters is a large company... i don't really like them... drake seems to damage a lot of cars... so unitow?? drake's got some really nice looking trucks though.. and if htey don't damage it, they're very reasonable...

seems like drake is charging 38 for towing + another 25 cuz i need trollies + 2 per km ... or i can get flatbed for 60+2 for each km... would it be better to trollie the rear wheels or to use flatbed ?
