ATD Automotive Detailing was started by Shane Tanguy after he noticed a niche market for something he is passionate about that was yet to be offered in Guernsey. ATD started out offering only a dedicated detailing service, with a maintenance wash option for returning clients. Shane then decided to offer a valeting service with the same principal that is applied to all his details. Outperforming all others with quality, service and dedication. ATD only use the very best products that are tried and tested by themselves. With a Car being most peoples highest value asset, why shouldn't it get the most prestigious car care available.
In March 2016 Shane became a part of the Gtechniq Accredited Detailer Network. Gtechniq is a brand that he has used since first starting detailing. Gtechniq are a leading company in the detailing world, so this was an accreditation he really wanted to achieve. Due to Gtechniq's strict requirements for becoming part of the Network, this was a long process that years of hard work, but one that finally became a reality.
In February 2018 Shane decided to expand the business and start offering Paint protection Film to his clients. Shane became a Factory trained installer for Llumar. Llumar have a close relationship with Gtechniq so all products work in harmony with one another.
In July 2019 Shane decided to start offering Window tinting services to his clients. training was once again undertaken with Llumar.
In January 2020 ATD Automotive Detailing was invited to become a Llumar Authorised Fitment Centre. With only a handful of companies throughout the uk to be given the opportunity to become part of this elite network, it not only shows the commitment that ATD has within the PPF side of the business, but the commitment and trust that Llumar have with ATD's services also.
ATD Automotive Detailing are also an Approved member of the Professional Valeters and Detailers Trade Association, Authorised Chipex Applicators and Gtechniq Accredited Detailer.
ATD strive to offer their customers with the very best in car care. Keeping up to date with market leading products and testing new products.
What is detailing?
Detailing is generally broken down into two categories: exterior and interior. There are products and services that focus on these two areas specifically.
Exterior detailing involves cleaning and restoring or exceeding the original condition of the surface of the car's finish, chrome trim, windows, wheels, and tyres, as well as other visible components on the exterior of a vehicle. This level of passion, service and attention cannot be matched by a standard valet. A full detail will bring you car to the highest possible finish, far exceeding even the finish received from new. Detailing will not only improve a vehicles appearance. It also enhances the resaleability by protecting the vehicles surface with the highest grade products.
Interior detailing involves a deep cleaning of the whole interior cabin. Unlike standard valeting, where most will just dry vacuum upholstery and wipe down plastics, detailing involves the use of antibacterial cleaners, various specific brushes along with steam cleaners to not only clean, but remove bacteria of every interior surface.
