With any of these, AAA, Coachnet, or Good Sam, do you have to contact them first, before the tow or can you get your vehicle towed and then turn in the bill? In my recent case, there was only one tow operator within 75 miles and the tow was arrrange for me by the Forest service. I only waited 1 1/2 hour. As I had no cell phone coverage in the area, I had no way to contact anyone. The tow operator took AAA but I didn't ask him if he took anything else.
