Towing a Compass

Hate to think of such things . . . BUT
Has anybody had to have their Compass towed :
I was serching for a possible front and back tie down for my canoe and realized in not finding any that I would have no idea how to have the car pulled.
Like if it had to be loaded onto a flat bed-Where do they pull it from without killing the front or rear bumper?
Anybody have any recommendations for either issue?

Check it out . . .
Not much in the manual . . . .
Tells you to flat bed for sure. . .
But how to pull it up there?
That's the question :

like on any car, look for a part of the frame / sub frame to put the winch onto then tow it up.

Any tow truck driver worth his salt would do it right, heck they would face the same issue with 80%+ of other cars.
