Question about 2000 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
It can be towed as long as they lift it on the drive wheels. It cannot be towed on a ramp truck unless they remove the drive shaft first. Dragging your car even a few inches runs the risk of breaking the park mechanism and repair will require removal and complete disassembly of your transmission. Hire an old style tow truck that can lift your car to tow it and you should be okay.
If the car is situated in such a way as to prevent them from hooking up to the drive wheels then tell them when you call that you need a truck with "dolly wheels". These are wheeled ramps that your locked drive wheels can be placed on and the car moved. It may cost a little extra but not as much as fixing your transmission. Be there when they come to get it and make sure they do it right. Hope this helps.
