Fortunately, if your Toyota is within the 3 yr. 60,000 km. basic warranty or you have purchased Roadside Assistance coverage you simply call 1-888-TOYOTA8 (1-888-869-6828) and an approved towing company will be dispatched free of charge. If you are not covered by either of these options we understand your dilemma, as a courtesy to all Toyota owners, we invite you to call the 1-888-TOYOTA8 number and an approved towing company will be arranged on a customer pay basis.

Under no circumstances are you legally obligated to go to this shop. As the vehicle owner and payer of the insurance premium it is your right to choose the collision repair facility that you would prefer to repair your Toyota.
