Default Automatic Car Wash - Super Service Station (Kammana Halli, Bangalore)

Super Service Station, Kammana Halli Main Road, Bangalore.
Probably the first fully automatic car wash facility in Bangalore.

Products sold:
  • Tyres
  • Alloys
  • Nitrogen filling
  • Miscellaneous car accessories, shampoo, cleaners, KN filters etc.
Services Offered:
  • Automated Car wash
  • Tyres balancing and alignment
  • Nitrogen filling
What I liked:
  • Efficient service for all needs
  • Automated car wash, probably a first in bangalore. Convenient and time saving. Also could be saving on water and chemicals usage.
Complete car wash in 10 minutes. uses a gantry mounted 3 brush system from kkewash.com. The dealer is based out of Nagpur as per their website.

Mudguards are cleaned manually using pressurized water. If the car is very dirty, a manual pre-cleaning scrub is done to get rid of grime.

On the automatic wash, a floor mounted stream of jets cleans the underbody on entry. Once the car is positioned, the automated system rinses the car with water, sprays shampoo, brushes with water and on the last cycle sprays liquid wax.

The car is manually wiped and vaccumed on the exit ramp.

It took about 30min to complete the whole process, with the automatic wash taking less than 10 minutes.

Pricing:

Rs. 300/- for body wash.
Rs. 400/- for full wash.

Services used:
  • Tyres
  • Nitrogen filling
  • Car Wash both manual and automatic
  • Alignment and Balancing. Trust his work over any of the ASC.
  • Car wash products bought.
  • Tubeless puncture repair
Contact / Location:

It used to look like an exclusive tyre shop earlier. Last week they were renovating. Now I know what they were upto!
Anyways, good to have such a place in our area. Was badly missing one. Will head there soon.
Thanks for sharing, Smsrini.

But I guess parking will be a problem in weekends.

I have been there earlier couple of times for the manual wash. Pretty quick they are.
Last time I was there, the automatic setup was being set up.

Do they still do the manual wash, if I don't want to go for the automatic?

I got a car wash done today here and they did a quick and clean job. There are two supervisors (owners I suppose) who keep a close eye on all proceedings and ensure the boys do a good job. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a quick car wash.

It is not fully automatic. The car is not on a conveyor belt. Does somebody drive the car slowly? This is strange.

Samurai,

The brushes are mounted on an automatic gantry that moves. the car is positioned relative to the sensors and is stationary.

cheers!

Yes, smsrini is right, the car is positioned and the mounted brushes move.
Whenever Prithvi (the onwer) is around, he spends more time in the wash section, than in his tyre store.
Recently, I also noticed some Red Rooster Performance posters being put up.

Visited this place y'day for body wash. Paid 300/- for wash and interior vacuuming.

They took more than 1 hour for the job! They could improve their efficiency bcos half of the time the car was sitting idle.
Coming to the quality, sadly, I'm disappointed. Came back with water marks on windows and dirty engine-bay.
My beloved(?) Concorde T.A.S.S. does much much better job when it comes to wash quality, for Rs.250/- and sometimes for free-of-cost during paid service.

Overall, I would rate them only @ 6 / 10.

^^^ Yep somehow the specialized wash centers that all the malls too have coming up every now and then don't do as good a job at washing the car as the service centres and the petrol pumps normally do an even better job in both cases charging lesser.

I know this place and I think they are expensive for what they offer. Time saved is perhaps worth the money for some folks, but my experience with them isn't good so far. Instances:

a. My friend was charged 300 bucks for nitrogen top up in his scorpio!!!
b. My alloys were damaged when changing tyres even when I asked the technician to be very careful and they had good equipment.
c. My neighbor was overcharged by 200 per tyre when he changed all 4 of them
d. I was asked 400 for regular cleaning (this is before they had this system in place)

It's difficult to find a parking spot in this place and although they have the right equipment, they give you a take or leave it attitude... not welcoming.
