map-tow truck interaction

When a tow truck gets to an address to tow a car, it needs to ask the the map (or whatever is storing the cars) what particular car (if any) is at that address. When movers tow the car, they need to deposit it somewhere. What is the best way about this?

If you have an association then it seems like the tow truck would be able to check if the car is there without actually going to that address. Is it alright if the tow truck is able to do so, just as long as we don't program it that way. That is, make the tow truck go to the specified address and then check even though it could take a shortcut.

Is this an acceptable thing to do...? Anyone have any other ideas?
