For me, a shop would be to get in, buy something (or at least get some 
service done) and go out. That's not the case here. A towing service 
will get to your place to do something, much like the office of a 
plumber (which in most cases also wouldn't "qualify" for a shop).

You might even won't be allowed to enter the area.

Different thing would be car repair or car rental, which is also doing 
towing service, in these cases I simply would add towing_service=yes.
