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.

Recently got the JTP washed, interior steam cleaned, and detailed. Quite happy with the outcome I must say!

Vijay from TCD explains everything perfectly, and does not cut any corners. He really knows what he is doing!

My car was absolutely FILTHY, and he was asking me if I'd gone off roading (I hadn't) !! I will let the pictures do the talking.

Took my Punto to TCD a week ago. It was not detailed for a while, and the interior was pretty messed up as well. Vijay did a phenomenal job and it was well worth driving to the other side of town. Results below. Sure doesn't look like a 1lakh+ kms run car (at least to my eyes )
