Default Coach-Net w/o toad

I looked all over the Coach-Net website and could not find this. It's probably there somewhere. I emailed them the question earlier today but no response yet. Here's my question:

At the time of disablement, if I do not have a toad, does Coach-Net provide transportation for me and my family (small dog included) at least to the repair facility they are towing my Bird to? Or is that a problem left for me to solve? If so, how have you guys handled this?

They will usually let you ride in the tow truck, but there is a limit of space.
Might just leave the generator running for AC and leave the dog in there.
I think I would call Enterprise at the same time I called the wrecker.

Once the tow operator let us ride in the coach. Kept the curtains drawn & we didn't look out the windows. With two dogs, two teenage girls & Rita & I it he did us a real favor. Flat four lane highway, I don't think he ever went over 50MPH.

Most wouldn't let you ride in the coach. Probably against the law most places & tow company's policies & insurance would not allow the driver the option.

Driver was a nice guy, helped us out.

A very polite Coach-Net representative named Maggie left me a voicemail answering my question. She said it depends on the service provider. She said to notify the Coach-Net dispatcher you need a ride to the service center and they will attempt to find a service provider that can provide transportation. Ultimately it depends on the service provider as to whether they can provide transportation.

I was impressed they called to answer my emailed question and even left a voicemail answer when they did not reach me. I was trying to decide GS OR Coach-Net. I'm going with Coach-Net.

We have used both. Save yourself grief--go with Coach Net. Good choice.
