Default Washing + Detailing for cars & bikes - Top Coat Detailers, Chennai

Top Coat Detailer

This place, at Thoraipakkam offer wash, wax and detailing for cars & bikes. Vijayaraghavan is an engineer by education but started this venture due to his interest in vehicles. He has a couple of packages and always suggests what he thinks suits the vehicle.

Likes
  • A nicely covered, BIG garage.
  • On a by lane, yet very next to the OMR highway
  • He is mostly the hands on guy, hence the personal attention
  • Very reasonable rates (compared to the likes of OCD)
  • Friendly and can converse well in English

Dislikes
  • None. If at all, he usually takes just 1 car at a time so he can focus well on it

Contact Information

Address : Sri Sowdeswari Nagar, 1st Main Road, Okkiyampettai, Oggiyamduraipakkam, Tamil Nadu 600097

Phone : 095001 93343

Website : https://www.facebook.com/TopCoatDetailersTCD/

Services I have used
  • Bike wash - Rs. 250/-
  • Chain lube : Rs. 100/-
  • Bike detailing - 1200/- odd (can't remember now)
  • Car detailing - 10,000/- (7H coating)

I first went to TCD based on a feedback from a friend. He used to get his Duke & Fiesta washed / detailed from TCD and was a repeat customer. He also showed me some pics of his R15 and I was sold on the shine with a monthly wash (after the detailing).

I have also got a bike detailing done for my CBR 250 (Link) - he usually doesn't prefer waxing. The detailing for my CBR 250 was done in October 2019 and the shine comes back with just a wash even after 6 months of parking in the open.

Car detailing : Gave my 2014 pre-owned black Fiesta for detailing right after I acquired it. While the car is well maintained, I wasn't happy with the shine and the interiors were quite dirty. I like the wet look of the black and told him that's what I want. He suggested two options, one was to do a polymer coating and the second one the 7H coating - said that's the highest package and quoted 6K & 10K respectively. He always quotes rates once he inspects the vehicle and the effort required, which is fair I think.

I had shown the pics of my CBR to a colleague, who gave his Swift to TCD is very happy with the work too. He had previously detailed his Ecosport with Baran. His recent calls & messages to Baran were not answered and hence TCD came into picture and I don't think my colleague is going back to Baran.

Disclaimer: I have no personal / financial interests and I am a very satisfied, repeat customer.
