A bad starter would be a primary cause for this can pull starter and have it tested. Make sure power lead to starter has not corroded or broke off and that the relay or fuse is not shorted out. You will probably want to start with this

did the towing person load test the battery if not you should get that done first if it is good then I agree with #1 answer
