Everyone here is happy, friendly and extremely helpful. It’s incredibly clean, organized, and stocked with every tool you could possibly need. I will definitely be going back whenever I need work done on any of my cars. Great job! - 2/20/2019
Can't say enuff great things about this place. Saw it advertised at one of the car shows. Spent the day yesterday there working with one of my buddies on his Toyota 86. Great setup, all the tools we needed, very well stocked on everything. The staff Doug and Jared where awesome and a huge help. Can't wait to go back on our next project. - 9/17/2017
I was running to the store to prepare myself for a half days work on changing out my brakes in my garage when I remember seeing a flyer about this diy garage. I made a quick call and they had a lift bay available. So instead of buying additional supplies I headed over there. I am so glad I decided to work on my jeep here. All the tools I would need are easily available. The garage is clean and has a lot of space. The time it took was well worth the cost of the bay rental. And they charge in 15 minute increments so I didn't have to rush to get it done in an hour to pay for a second hour. Also if you need some guidance on your project or some assistance, the staff is very helpful. They helped by getting the right tools that fit my jeep, keeping the bay clean, and making sure i was comfortable with the project. They are there for you. I highly recommend for anyone that doesn't want to make a mess in your garage or need the space. Even just putting your car on a lift makes working the project much easier. - 9/03/2017
Super cool DIY shop! Everything you need is at your disposal. Brought my Jeep in to tinker with the front suspension. The staff was awesome and ready to help with questions. Discovered the tie rods need to be replaced while it was on the lift so we will definitely be coming back. My only suggestion is that before the guys bring the vehicles into/out of the shop that they (or I) throw something over the front seat. I have a pretty good sized shop grease smudge on the drivers seat where someone slid in or out of my Jeep with a grimy butt. Overall though a great experience and I will definitely be back! - 9/27/2018
Was going to install my Borla X-Pipe on my Vette in my garage, using a floor jack and jack stands. Wasn't really looking forward to that. So a friend of mine says hey dummy, take it to American DIY Garage and have them put it on a lift. So I did. Wow, what a facility. Can't say enough about the place and the staff. Really! Great tools, place is very neat and tidy. I'll be back. Go Navy!! - 5/27/2018
Went in to do some exhaust work and will definitely be going anytime I have a bigger job. Every tool I needed was there. The staff is awesome and extremely helpful. It's a great shop environment and it makes jobs so much easier knowing you have the right tools and knowledgeable staff that can help you get your job done. - 8/15/2018
Awesome experience! Great service and saves lots of money! I will definitely be back! - 8/29/2019
American DIYG is outstanding. Not only is the Garage itself impressive, but the staff go above and beyond to make sure your time there is enjoyable and worth your money. Not only do they have the tools, lifts, individual car bays, everything is top notch! They even have a TV lounge (for when you need a brain brake or a snack/drink to step back and get a breather.) I brought by kids along too. Great for them to learn...and did I mention they have killer style. Makes getting back under a car lots of fun. - 5/20/2019
A fabulous facility. Great staff, awesome layout and extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff. Had everything we needed to rebuild the front axle of our 78 F-250. Very clean and well kept. Tools were very well organized in the tool boxes and the tool corral had everything that wasn't right at our station. Very pleased and will be back for future projects. Oh...and if you are a dog lover, you are sure to be greeted by two large fur babies when you check in. What a wonderful experience. - 2/10/2017
Like doing your own work and don't want to pay an arm and leg for a repair shop then I strongly recommend the American DIYG. This facility has all the tools you would need at each stall. Whether you want a stall with a lift or one without a lift they have what you need to do your work (no alignment equip). They told me that there will have the capability to recharge you vehicle AC soon. The personnel working there are very knowledgeable and helpful. If you get stuck or just need an extra hand they are more than will to help. They will even order a part for you if you find you need something and have it delivered there. I just recently used the facility and was extremely impressed with the quality of the tools that made available to you to use (tool box at each tall and tool room). Pricing was extremely reasonable and they have various discounts for different groups such as active duty, vets, police etc. just ask them about it. Check it out online and see the pictures provided. You can make an appointment on line or by phoning them. If I ever have another job to be done on my care I will go back to them to do it. - 1/11/2018
I had been looking for a reason to get in this garage; this is the best place for those of you who like to work on your own vehicles. Everything is clean, all the tools you need and some you didn't know you did (and won't want to do without again!), clean restrooms, climate controlled environment, AND coffee!! The staff was great and made us feel at home and safe while working on our vehicle. Thank you! :) - 3/07/2020

Just went in to do some basic maintenance on my ZL1 and had a great experience. Amazing overall customer service and everything was very clean and convenient. David Ortiz made sure I had everything I needed and even went out of his way to fabricate a device for me to use to refill my supercharger oil. Looking forward to using American DIY again. - 2/15/2020

Went in to knock out the outer tie rods on my Tacoma. Wayne was really helpful with making sure I had all the right tools and even offered pointers throughout the install. Very clean shop, with all the tools you’ll ever need to get the job done. It turned out that I needed an inner tie rod and Advance Auto Part go the part to me under 20 minutes. Best DIY shop for guys who like to do their own work. - 1/20/2020
The staff are awesome, they have every tool I have been able to think of, and they keep the place really clean. I can't say enough good things about how helpful the staff are. If you have a question they are very helpful. They also drove my car out of the garage, noticed an issue, and so they drove it back in and helped me figure out what the issue was so that I could drive home safely. I have saved thousands of dollars by going here instead of a mechanic. - 2/20/2019
Scheduled a lift and was greeted upon arrival. If you're a DIYer or even slightly mechanically inclined this place is for you! Great people, tools and facilities! Highly recommend this business! - 2/03/2018

What a great place to work on your car. They have the tools, the knowhow, and can get the parts if you run into an unexpected problem. - 2/20/2019
First time going there and I fell in love with place. I work in a machine shop.
So I know how important it is to have all the right tools. And they do. They're very helpful when you need a hand. They are very friendly and professional.
I plan on doing most of my vehicles maintenance there. - 2/01/2018
I'm a novice when I comes to cars, I'm a woman but I can do basic stuff like change tires check air check oil and so on. I needed new wheel and hub bearings and after researching found I could do it myself and took it to these guys. Got into my bay on time they lifted it for me and gave me pointers and tips along the way even had to use some heavy duty machinery to get one loose. Big thanks to all the staff. The place is clean the staff is welcoming and they even have a cute little shop puppy that I played with for a bit. All around good place if you wanna be a do it yourself person, are tired of the dealers or just wanna save yourself some money head over to DIYSG you wont regret it. - 3/07/2020

Great place to work on your car, they got all the tools you'd ever need and the staff is super helpful & friendly. - 7/21/2018
These people are so amazing! They are very nice and extremely knowledgeable. I had to change the break pads, rotors, and calipers on all four wheels of my Nissan Altima and they helped me with all of it. Any questions they answered very well and made sure I knew exactly what I was doing. They showed me step by step how to do it. I could not have done it without them. Very clean and organized workstations and the lift bays made everything extremely easy. I also had a messed up tire stud that was messed up while getting new tires and rims. I had an appointment to get it fixed by the people that accidentally broke it. They saw this and helped me fix it up so that I was driving safer until my appointment. They are amazing people and I will definitely be coming back to do any work I need to do. Thank you guys so much!!! - 8/13/2018
American Do It Yourself Garage is a great business where you can fix your own vehicle with the help of skilled, knowledgeable staff and all the tools you need. Wayne Tugwell is the best! - 12/10/2018
I try to do most of the work on my own cars but have always been limited to a parking lot and basic tools. I ran into an issue with a stuck wheel bearing and didn't want to spent a small fortune at a shop on a $20 part. A friend said that there was a DIY shop on London Bridge so I checked it out yesterday and I was very impressed with everything. I wish I had known about this place earlier! They had everything I needed and I was finished in no time. Their prices are great and the guys working there were very helpful and friendly. I will definitely be going back the next time I need something done to one of my cars. - 10/08/2017
By far the one of the best experiences working on a car besides working with my father in law up in Michigan. So convenient I didn't even need to bring my tools they had EVERYTHING!!! The people were amazingly nice and helpful, they were knowledgeable and helped me diagnose future issues that I will definitely returning to do. I recommend this place to anybody especially during the winter a nice comfortable place to fix your car. - 2/20/2018
Great place to get some work done with a lift and all tools, etc. Was able to help a friend get his BMW lowered in a few hours with ease.
Highly recommended! - 1/14/2017
This is the best Do It Yourself Garage around! This place has it all: great lifts, new and organized tools, and a friendly environment. It is also owned by two of the nicest and honest people in the world! I would recommend everyone to come check out American Do It Yourself Garage in Virginia Beach, VA - 2/14/2018
I love this place and everyone is so helpful. I want to learn how to maintenance my own vehicle and everything was ready for me to start. From tools to videos - they have it all. - 9/26/2018
Came here to replace the clutch and flywheel in my Infiniti G35 and got a bay right away. They had all the necessary tools to make the job go smooth and the staff was pleasant to deal with and very knowledgeable. Will definitely come back to take care of future maintenance work. - 6/10/2018
excellent staff, they go out of the way to help if you need it. everything was clean and ready for use. I will be back soon for sure. - 3/04/2020
I had a ruptured,poorly previously repaired fuel line on my 68 Dart that was leaking fuel on my exhaust. I trailered it to American Do It Yourself Garage this morning. The friendly folks got me set up in a lift stall and provided some muscle and humor when needed. Very knowledgeable and provided great guidance on my complete fuel line replacement. It took me 5 hours, it would not have taken less time on my back. LOL The stalls (Bays) are clean and spacious. Tools are provided. Very organized shop. Thanks to everyone who helped and showed genuine concern for my project. The atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming. I will be back. - 5/26/2018
I went a few weeks ago to do some work on my truck. I will definitely go back more as the need arises.
Not only do they have all the tools you can possibly need, the staff is very helpful if you need a hand. - 4/23/2017
Loved it. Great equipment. Great staff. My nee go to shop when i want to work on my car. - 3/25/2017
Great place for the people who like to work on their cars and dont have lifts and tools. Nice people very experienced and helpful. People who know how to work on cars and save money on expensive labor this is a place to go. Well maintained equipments and facility. - 6/08/2020
This shop provides it's customers with a great clean atmosphere, and every tool you may need to complete your project. I never came across anything I needed that was not within my tool box, which was clean and organized, making my intercooler install go as smooth as possible.
The staff was nice, and the owner seemed to know me by name before I left.. I'm glad I came here over the Hobby Shop on base for sure, and I would definitely recommend making the drive to the American Do It Yourself Garage just as I did from Suffolk. It is worth it. Thanks again, I'll see you guys again soon. - 8/05/2017
Went for the first time on 09/14/18 to replace all four struts on my 2018 Toyota Camry. Not having any knowledge of what I was doing and only review YouTube videos. The staff walked me thru every step and assisted when I was having issues. They made sure I had everything I need to finish the installs. I will be returning to work on my car again and have have recommended it to all my girlfriends who are interested in doing there own car repairs. - 9/17/2018
First time visiting and it was a great experience. Clean shop, and plenty of space to work in. I used a flat bay, which had a tool box with an organized and well labeled tool box. Highly recommend them! - 8/03/2018
Outstanding facility with excellent staff support. I will be returning in near future. If you work on your car this place is a must visit The hoist is sure nice vs. the ground and a sheet of cardboard. - 5/20/2019
This is a great place. The staff if friendly and very helpful. It's a little pricey, but worth it. Having all the tools on hand and a lift made changing my oil pump a lot easier than it would have been in my driveway. I only wish they had package deals to buy hours at a discount. I'll be going back and would recommend. - 7/21/2019
Awesome place for novice or experienced. Super friendly staff that actually helps if needed. Awesome concept! Will recommend to everyone and will return again myself! - 11/18/2019
I can't say enough of how great my experience was at the ADIY Garage. The staff was so helpful and the facilities were top notch. The tools provided were the best and made my auto work go smoothly and effortless. I highly recommend this place because they saved me a ton of money the dealerships and private auto repair places would have charged me. Give this place a try. You will not be disappointed!! I will be returning for more jobs in the future! - 11/20/2019
Went in for an A/C service,quick and easy. saved a load of money vs dealer or a shop. Staff was awesome and I will be back for sure. would recommend highly to others. - 4/12/2017
Great place to be able to work on your car on a lift. I had the wrong oil filter and they were able to get a supplier to bring me the correct one in a short amount of time. All the guys were a great help to me. - 6/30/2018
Everyone is very friendly and helpful got an issue ask for help they deffinatly point you in the right direction. Need something that's not in a tool box like a bigger hammer just ask. I brought my dog she relaxed in my car and liked that employee's and others at the garage gave her attention when she sticks her head out the window to see what's going on. I have been a total of 3 times and am from out of state would definitely recommend stopping in if you need somewhere to work on your own car and are in the area. Thank you again employee's - 1/27/2019
Went in for some quick maintenance. Awesome place and awesome staff. Definitely will be returning. - 2/26/2017
This is my dream garage! I live in a townhouse and been working on my vehicles as well as my friends vehicles in my driveway for over 20 years. This garage is magnificent!! The staff is extremely helpful and courteous!! I have already started planning my next visit and what work I'm going to do on which vehicle. I would like to extend my gratitude to the owners for opening the garage and the staff for the assistance today - 2/03/2018
The staff were super nice, attentive and helpful. I would recommend this place to any and all of my friends. Great atmosphere! - 2/20/2019
Great people running DIY! Clean shop and have probably all the tools you would need. They also have a knowledgeable staff if you need any help. Money well spent, buy using the shop I saved all the labor and parts markup. The mechanic shop wanted to charge 1260.00 to replace the front struts, and rear shocks. I purchased everything from rock auto for 250.00 and it only took 1.5 hours to replace everything. So with the availability of DIY and tools, I only spent 285.00, that is a large savings. I will use this DIY Garage again.
DIY Garage, thank you

Came here for the first time with my son yesterday. Shop was clean and well organized. Jarod was great. He provided advice and a helping hand when we needed it. Looking forward to coming back. - 12/22/2018
I’m so glad I stopped and checked this place out. Once my parts came in, I scheduled a bay. The bay was so clean, tools readily available and staff very professional and friendly. I will definitely use them again. - 11/11/2017
Do all the work yourself with an awesome team there to help you out if you get stuck or just have a question. Clean work environment with all the tools you need to get the job done. - 3/08/2017
Clean - 6/09/2020
By far, the best place to work on your car! They had every tool that I needed and we're all arranged perfectly in my own personal work area. No more digging around my garage to find a tool! The staff was excellent...always there to give an extra hand & answer any question that I had. I'll be back for sure! - 9/26/2017
What a GREAT place to get some auto work done. The staff was more than helpful and provided insights! Can't wait to get back there for more work on my classic car! - 1/24/2018
These guys were awesome. They helped me get my car set up to do my oil change. Gathered tools they thought i would need. I was in and out in 20 minutes. I will use this garage for all my future DIY work. - 8/20/2019
Great space, large selection of tools, and helpful staff. I can't say enough good things about my experience. I will be back for all my and my wife's vehicle upgrades and routine servicing. - 7/28/2017
This is one of the best finds. They have all the tools and knowledgeable people to help. It is all inside out of the weather and have flat bays and lifts. I recommend this place to anyone who likes to work on their car and do it yourself. I wish I would have found this place sooner. - 3/23/2019
Went here to replace a part in my suspension. The staff were knowledgeable and helped out with all of my many questions, assisted when some bolts wouldn't budge, and even helped order a part that I ended up needing and it got there within 30 minutes. The shop is clean and has all the tools you could need to do any car repair job. Highly recommend! - 2/20/2019
Cool place to work on car great layout and decor, awesome employees and great price also very cool to have a lot of tools you may not 10/10 recommend - 12/09/2018
it was the first time that I had been to the garage, and even though it was for just an oil change it was great to have someone there to talk to and find out what other issues will come with my truck. will deffiantly be bringing my truck back for any other repairs that need to be done, and recommend you all to anyone that has to do any work on their vehicle - 4/27/2019
Clean shop and courteous employees. Not afraid to help or share a laugh, while also respecting your space and abilities. Really enjoyed both visits and will certainly be back. - 3/29/2017
I needed to just use the spring compressor to swap out some shocks and they were VERY helpful in my goal. They even actually helped me when I got stumped on a hard spot. Top notch guys. - 2/20/2019
I was getting ready to change my brake pads on my Grand Cherokee in the driveway, when a buddy of mine recommended this place.
Being able to use the lift and having more tools than I could imagine at my disposal made the job so much easier than being stuck at ground level.
Will definitely come here for all those DIY auto repairs! - 7/25/2017
Great place to perform do it yourself work on a vehicle. Excellent staff and connected with parts stores that deliver. You can't get that in your driveway! - 11/11/2017
I drove 2hrs just to get to this garage and it was worth it. A very clean, well organized place with every tool you'll need!
The staff is very friendly, helpful and most importantly, very non-judgmental. It was my first time working under the car and I was learning as I went and they were always patient whenever I asked them for help.
I also loved the cute little touches here and there. For example, instead of saying "Don't Touch" a sign would instead say "No Touchie". It is just really nicely done and you can tell that the owners really put a lot of thought into the little things!
I do hope that more people get into the habit of working on their cars themselves so that DIYG can open a garage in Richmond as well!
The only minor issue would be that you are not allowed to operate the lift yourself.
Probably because of insurance and liability reasons and I can't blame them but if, like me, you are too shy to ask them to adjust it again and again you end up losing the comfort of the lift.
For example, I had the car raised to a height where it would be comfortable to remove the wheels and after I was done with that, I ended up kneeling to work on the headlights which was quite uncomfortable. It was only after 20 mins or so that I got the courage to ask them to raise the car. Mind you, they have absolutely no problem with being asked to change the height again and again but I still felt uncomfortable asking them. Hopefully, the next time I visit, I'll be less shy! And I'll definitely be going there again! - 6/06/2019
Rear brake work (r/r pads & rotors).... how difficult could it be? I planned to do the work in my driveway until I went by & checked out American DIYG. Fantastic facilities & supper staff. Enjoyed the "nickel tour" and was back 3 days later to do the work. Pro quality bay with lift, all necessary tools (plus 1-2 that I wouldn't have had at home) and tech support when needed - all made the job a cinch. Plus I rotated the tires while on the lift. Will definitely be back with my other vehicle to do some routine maintenance. Thanks American DIYG! Will pass the word.... - 11/01/2019
The people there are nice and helped me when I needed help. All the tools I needed to get the job done. The car lifts made my work so much easier. - 2/20/2019
Wonderful place to work on your car!!!!!! - 2/20/2019
Great facility with more than enough tools for the job. A very friendly and helpful stuff that can assist to get the job done. - 2/20/2019
This place is great! Super clean and cozy! Pretty quiet also for a garage. The guys were really great at answering questions and assisting when asked. Especially Steve who went out of his way to keep me going! No need to buy tools or clog up your wife's garage with car stuff! Lol. These guys have everything you need! I will be visiting them again! Highly recommend! - 12/29/2018
awesome garage! tools are excellent fixed my Range Rover Supercharged and my girls Jeep Cherokee all in same day. Staff is excellent very knowledgeable and friendly. - 7/13/2019
First time using American Do it Yourself Garage! Staff and owners super helpful. Took Aidan to make it a father and son experience! Momma needed new struts and shocks on Nissan Sentra.

Beach - 5/13/2018
Was there this morning to knock out a clutch job. Great friendly staff and very nice clean tidy shop. Would highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone. - 4/16/2017
This place is amazing! My hubby and I decided to change out our brakes for the first time ourselves and found this place. They had everything we needed!! Down to the gloves! The customer service was impeccable! We went on a Saturday evening and one of the employees even helped us out and showed us how to do some things and made us more confident in what we were doing. Can’t wait to go back and save money and do things for ourselves! - 9/20/2019
Very good experience. Quality tools, friendly people and a really nice facility. The only down side is I doubt I will ever work on anything in my driveway again. I will be back. - 5/06/2018
Great place to do work. Staff is super helpful & friendly, it's really fun to work on my car here, and they have all the tools I'd ever need. You can save a lot of money and have a good time here. Only downside is it's a little difficult to get to unless you're in central/south VB. - 2/20/2019
The best place to go!the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.wouldnt go to any other place - 3/20/2019
Great spot. $upport locals when u can - 11/24/2018
Thanks for saving my husband a ton of money today by him using the garage! He said it was awesome and I am one happy wife that the AC now works in our Jeep! - 6/12/2017
This place is absolutely amazing. I’m not very car savvy but I wasn’t trying to pay dealership prices for a strut replacement so I figured I’d do it myself. I stumbled upon this place and I’m so thankful I did. Wayne and Dave(?) were super helpful, answered all of the many, many questions I had and was really patient, which for someone who had no idea what they were doing, im thankful for. Wayne even helped me on some parts of the strut replacement I wasn’t to sure about or had a hard time figuring out which I thought was awesome. They have basically any tool you would need and plenty of space to do any job you need done, and the shop itself is extremely clean. I would definitely recommend this place, and will for sure be coming back for all future DIY repairs. This place truly was a big save. 🙏🏻 - 1/02/2019
The garage was set up perfect. They had all the tools I needed to perform my work. The guys that work there were very friendly and knowledgeable. I will be recommending this place to all my gear head friends! - 3/11/2018
I stopped by American DIYG to throw some strut extensions in to level out my 2013 F-150,needed some guidance and they were there for me, this is by far the best shop ive ever worked in,with great guys running the place and an awsome shop i can only say ill be back for more and im bringin friends! - 2/04/2017
The place is top notch. Very well kept facilities, great and helpful staff, and very reasonable fees! This is now my go to place for working on my vehicles! Highly recommend! - 5/14/2017
Great shop area to get your work done. All the tools and supplies you need, and a little help if required! - 5/22/2018
I LOVED this place! Everything you could possibly need at your reach, amazing people, out of the weather, the people were FANTASTIC, knowledgeable, and over the top service. Absolutely over the top as far as being helpful. - 8/04/2017
Stopped by to work on my suspension before getting a final alignment with my lowered St. Great ownership and management! Willing to give a hand when needed. Great tools and Clean shop! Couldn't ask for a better place to work on the car. - 2/15/2017
I have been here 3 times so far. The staff is great and extremely helpful. The place is incredibly clean. They have all the tools you need. Why go to an expensive shop when you can save some money and "Do It Yourself." - 3/05/2017
Perfect environment to work for the DIYer. Clean, organized and accessible, it hits all the points of a great garage. - 3/11/2018
They are the best. Very reliable. - 2/20/2018
Regrettably I didn't take pictures during my visit but the photos on maps are spot on. This place is fantastic do do work on your vehicle. They had all the tools I needed to get in and out. The place is also clean and comfortable to work in. Beats working in the driveway any day. They had gloves, lubricants, towels and hand cleaner. Having a lift is nice if you know you'll need it. I needed a big torque wrench to do the work I was doing. The cost of that or to rent made the visit worthwhile. If you want to be successful in a visit you should plan ahead. I feel like they can help you do that too as they have pro access to parts through local parts stores. Staff was incredibly helpful and attendant to all my needs. Especially using their tools which were organized, unlike mine that are illogically arranged for my own frustration. Looking forward to my next DIY visit. - 2/20/2019
Nice and clean garage. Expensive and you get charged the moment you check in, not when your vehicle goes up in lift - 2/20/2019
I love this place!! They have everything you could need and more. Always great customer service!!! - 10/01/2017
This is an excellent place to work on your vehicle. Dry and warm, with lifts and well organized tools. The folks working there are always friendly and helpful and full of good advice. Prices are very reasonable for all the benefits you get. - 11/12/2018
I had a great experience. All the tools were available and if I had any questions or needed help, the staff did not hesitate. The tools and the environment were in excellent condition. Walking in, I thought I was walking into a show room. Would recommend this shop to anyone. - 11/30/2017
Place is awesome and staff helped us out when we would get stuck on something we couldn’t get done ourselves! - 1/20/2020

Went to help my brother work on his truck. After getting the rear wheels off of the F350 Dually we needed a special tool for removing the axle nut. Went to the guys @ DIYG and they had the exact tool to remove it. Once we got the drums off we found that the emergency brake shoes were worn. The guys stepped up and ordered the parts from the local parts house & had them there in 15 minutes.The Guys & American DIYG were great. All the stalls were full before we finished our work. Thanks Guys for all your help and an awesome shop for a reasonable price.As a small business owner myself, I know it must have cost them a fortune to setup this awesome shop.Once again, Thanks for all your help! Will be back again. - 12/20/2019
Always a great time at A DIYG! Owners are absolutely awesome people! Top shelf! - 10/02/2016
Very clean and organized. Staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Cute dogs on site as well. - 1/27/2018

Every person that does their own auto repairs should do it here. - 8/20/2019
These guys are great! I do all my work here from pulling the motor on my project to routine maintenance on my daily. They are always friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to help if I need it. 10/10 reccomend to everyone! - 8/29/2018
LOVE working on my car and saving hundreds of $$$$$The staff helps if you get in unfamiliar territory. Saw my first lady working on her car.AAA wanted $800 to replace my alternator on a focus .Said it was a hard to get part so it was 350 and it was hard to get to so anothet 375 plus tax. I went to an auto parts store and got it for $99ِ and it took me 30 minutes to swap it. So you cant trust AAA by Janaf .Come give it a try . - 2/20/2019
Great Veteran run business, always there to assist with work. - 1/26/2019
Our first time. Have no regret. Excellent services. Everything for your use.nice clean rest area. Friendly and helpful staff.we love it.great Diyg. - 6/20/2017
American Do It Yourself Garage has everything you need including expert advice, tools, and space to take care of almost any repair need you may have. Simple disk brake replacement? In and out in about an hour, thanks to their well laid out tool box, tool crib, and lift. Thank you Josh and ADIYG crew! I will be back!
Brad - 4/15/2019
Nothing short of being the best. Professional approach, friendly and very business like place. Was just visiting Virginia Beach and I needed to check my brakes. Instead working on the street in heat and humidity I recommend this place specially if you know what to do. 5 stars nothing short of it. - 8/20/2019
Awesome service. Didn’t do any work my self, but Wayne helped me plug a tire. Also explained how the shop works and if I ever need anything I’m always welcome back. Bays and entire shop look beautiful. Highly recommend. - 7/08/2018
Fantastic! Very helpful! Great to work inside and save money doing it yourself! - 6/20/2019
Outstanding facility, a wrencher’s DREAM!!! Just wish it wasn’t 3.5hrs from me!!! If you factor in typical labor fees, and time tracking down and gathering tools/parts, this place pays for itself in minutes. It’s SO good, I’m considering driving the 3.5 hrs just to do my work here. - 11/19/2017
Clean, Great atmosphere, Kind and helpful Staff, Every tool you can think of or need without having to go rent it
The staff are knowledgeable, capable and are a great help if you get stuck.
Gone are the days of jacking your car up 1000 different ways in front of your house on the street with your neighbors eyeballing you in judgment. - 5/25/2019
The entire experience is a 10+. The facility is great with an equally amazing staff. They provide plenty of guidance and advice and made for a truly great visit. - 2/20/2018
My other half and I were looking to change the suspension on his car, came across this place and decided to give it a shot. Not only is the facility amazingly clean and organized, the people are incredibly helpful and friendly. We will absolutely be back for our next project! - 6/04/2017
I have a shop and do onsite work but I was asked by a friend to help with her truck after some other idiot messed up the job. Her dad set it up for me to work on her truck here. I have over 35 years experience as a mechanic and I work on everything from Harleys to medium duty diesel trucks. DIY garage is spotless clean! The place is well equipped with tools. The staff are excellent and on point! I was surprised by this place having a motorcycle lift. A guy came in and worked on his bike. For a diy person I highly recommend checking this place out! They supply everything needed from brake clean, PB blaster, parts washers and blue mechanics paper towels! I’ll also add that the automotive decor is great!!! - 3/22/2019
Great place to git-r-done!! - 2/20/2017
Unbelievable how clean everything is considering some of the grungy work being done and fluids leaking/spilled under vehicles. They are meticulous in making sure your space is 100% clean and ready when you arrive and every tool you can imagine is there for you. Very nice guys who are ready and willing to share knowledge or lend a hand (literally!) if you need help. - 1/20/2020
Not enough words to describe how awesome this place is. My wife and I live in DC but she is from VA beach. We saw this place one visit and thought we'd have to check it out for a repair. Sure enough my wife needed new brakes and rotors. Fast forward to repair day, the staff ran me through layout of the garage, they offered assistance when needed and expert advice during my repair. They constantly checked on me to make sure I was ok. Their facilities are top notch and $30/hr for a lift Bay is generously reasonable. This place is perfect for people on a budget, or those whod rather work on their own car instead of paying for labor. I will be making the 4 hr drive to VA beach anytime I need to perform a car repair from now own. 20 out of 10!!! - 2/20/2017
The professional staff and chill clean environment. - 8/20/2019
Love this place. I heard about this company at the local Night Moves Car Show a while ago and never had the chance to come check it out until I had to do an oil change on a car. For a college student who does not have all of the tools necessary here on campus, its absolutely phenomenal to do simple to complicated jobs. From the tool quality to the character quality of the employees, I 100% recommend this business. - 4/05/2018
It's no wonder American DIYG has high ratings! Awesome place to wrench on your car. Very comfortable and pretty much any tool you can think of is at your disposal.Staff was very friendly and will check up on you throughout your stay. Work smart and comfortably away from the elements with American DIYG. Highly recommend using their services! 5 stars! - 7/03/2019
It's pretty awesome to have access to $1 million facility and expert's willing to help out. I do plenty of work in my driveway, but sometimes there's a problem you run into that you need the professionals (or at least there equipment!)
Doug and Sean helped me to get two seized bolts out of my loose suspension parts. We spent an hour doing what would've taken me two days to complete at home and it only cost me 20 bucks!
I was surprised to see their operating hours on Sunday, and I was able to go home and complete my project without waiting till the next "business day."
Thumbs up to this great community asset.

They were absolutely amazing and extremely helpful! I would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to work on there own car and save thousands of dollars by doing the work on your own car. - 3/11/2018
These guys make you feel right at home. - 2/20/2019
Excellent shop for anyone willing to get their hands dirty. The bay setup and tools are all you need to get it done and the staff is extremely helpful. They're there to make your project a success, so don't be afraid to do it yourself. - 11/16/2019
Awesome experience! Super cool facility! Excellent service with hard working staff that lends a hand if needed. First class from start to finish! - 11/20/2019
they got me in super last second. bays were clean and organized they had everything I needed. service was great. highly recommend to anyone. - 4/13/2019
My wife and I saved close to $700 with a bit of effort and some good help from the staff. Everyone was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. I can't believe I didn't find this place before. The garage is very clean and very well stocked with every tool you don't have but need. With the tips and guidance I received I feel confident that with some help and research almost any typical repair is now DIY. - 2/20/2018
Being a Manufacturing Engineer, I tend to be critical about lean principles. I'm please to say, this garage is very nice and organized. I plan to utilize their facilities in the future. - 2/20/2019
Took my Jeep in for a 2” lift... the staff there was friendly, knowledgeable, experienced, and helped make a job that would have been very difficult to complete on my own into a real possibility. When I got stuck trying to remove my rusted factory front shocks, they knew exactly how to tackle the job with a mini sawzall and save the day! The shop itself is super clean, heated, and has all the tools you could ever want conveniently at your disposal. Plus they have BobFM playing on the radio, how can you beat that! I can’t say enough good things about this place and the staff! - 1/25/2019
Needed to change the Manual Transmission fluid in my '06 Dodge Ram 2500. I call American Do It Yourself Garage and reserved a bay. I showed up a bit early and they got me right in, walked me through the facility, and showed me where all the tools and supplies were. Once I got to work I needed some special tools and they helped me to get them. They also helped me to figure out a tool to get the transmission drain pug out as it it was right over the left bank exhaust crossover tube (Hemi 5.7). I was highly impressed with the friendliness, helpfulness, and ingenuity of the staff. If you don't have a garage of your own, are traveling through and need a place to work on your car, or just want a place to do jobs you don't have tooling for in your own shop, this is an excellent place to go to get the job done! I know I will be returning should I need shop space or need tooling I don't have myself. Thank you to everyone at American Do It Yourself Garage! - 8/25/2019
This is a great up-and-coming business model that will change the way that people think about caring for their cars. The greatest thing about this business is truly the people who work there and the customer base that you come in contact with spending time in the shop. I would highly recommend coming here when ever your car needs some work as it is a much more economical alternative to taking your car to a dealership and also more economical than spending your money purchasing your own set of tools. - 2/20/2019
Great price - 2/20/2018
Awful service. No idea how they are still open. - 2/13/2020

Awesome shop with everything you need. Very clean and very professional. Best place for all you do it yourself types. - 11/10/2018
Good quality tools, friendly and great quality service. They’re car club friendly, and they have 2 shop dogs. It’s like a win-win-win. - 1/18/2018
Great people! Went in to do motor mounts and trans mount on my 06 GTO. They had every tool imaginable. The facility is extremely clean and everything is well organized. Owner and employees treat you like family. Plus if you’re a dog lover, they have 2 of the sweetest Golden retrievers to greet you at the front door. Would recommend this place to anyone! - 1/13/2018
Great shop, great tools, great staff who lend a hand and give some great advice. Access to any tool you could ever need! (no need to improvize a screw driver as a pickle fork). Not many places you can go and use a lift, but they have four of them here! Do yourself a favor and stop by and see for yourself! - 2/20/2019
First time customer this week! Met with Dave & Wayne and they both gave me a detailed description of the facilities/equipment and an overall breakdown of what the garage offers to its customers. I was impressed with the cleanliness and layout of the facility. I recommend the DIYG facility and Team. Thanks for your service! - 11/20/2019
The best experience i could ask for,They had parts delivered while i removed my parts. It took like 20 minutes.for parts to get there. Every tool i needed, to include air powered tools. Rags ,cleaners, brushes, feeler gauges . i did about 700 dollars worth of work for less than $350. You all gave this plumber is fully stock garage.Thanks and till next time.Be blessed - 3/07/2020
THE BEST PLACE TO WORK ON AUTOMOBILES I WILL ALWAYS BRING MY VEHICLE HERE AWESOME STAFF!! - 1/14/2017
Booked online to reserve a lift online for the next morning & not even 10mins later I got a confirmation response. When we got there we were shown around & met some of the staff - very friendly & down to help. Everything went so smooth. We will definitely be coming back! - 3/10/2019
The guys were so helpful in assisting me with any questions i had. - 12/19/2019
Nice spot just got the club membership can’t wait to get the club up there - 2/18/2018
I highly recommend DIYG!
IT is convenient for the do it yourselfers who want to save money on vehicle maintenance & repairs.
Prices are very reasonable & hours of operation are convenient! ,
For a garage, the tool boxes are organized and inventory is checked to to ensure tools are in the proper places. I was surprised at how clean everything is at this establishment.
The employees drive the vehicle in to the bay area & if a lift is needed they operate it for the customer. The vehicle is driven out by the attendants.
It is a very pleasant environement with helpful attendants who are more than willing to lend a hand when needed.
My husband & I have brought our own vehicles in to work on, as did our son in order do needed repairs and maintenance.
We recently had to replace the brakes on one of our SUV's for state inspection however, the brake fluid still needed to be bled.We headed to DIYG to get that job done.
I learned something new regarding vehicle maintenance and enjoyed working along side my spouse. We have been working on cars together for many years and this is the perfect place to get things done!
We have been telling our friends who work on their own vehicles to stop by and check this establishment out.
You wont be disappointed !! - 7/03/2017
Great facility and awesome staff. I didn't have the specialty tools needed to finish a wheel bearing replacement and they had everything I needed. Great prices too. I will definitely come back the next time I need to work on any of my cars. - 2/20/2019
Great place to come in and work on your car. All the tools you could need for any job, and the people who work there are friendly as hell. - 8/19/2017
Awesome experience here changing my brakes, oil, and broken taillight. I was able to do it all very quickly and saved hundreds by not taking it to a repair shop instead. very helpful staff who did not belittle me for being an amateur and helped me the whole way and I learned alot. I will definitely be back to do shocks and springs next. highly recommended. - 3/04/2019
Awesome experience! Great place to service & work on your personal vehicles. Very clean, & organized. Wonderful & helpful staff. "Sprinkles" the shop dog is a great door greeter at the garage. Thank you DIY Garage! Will definitely be a return customer!!! - 7/28/2018
This place is a gem for anyone who likes to work on their own car. I live in an apartment which makes it difficult to do my own work. The place is always clean and neat, the staff is super friendly and alway willing to point you in the correct direction, and they have every tool you need to do your project right. Oh and of course who can forget those beautiful shop puppies. I would recommend this place to anyone (at any skill level) who wants to do their own work on their ride. - 4/29/2018
Awesome experience at American DIYG! Staff and facility were top notch. Will definitely be back again! - 10/13/2017
Went in today for some work in my Jeep. They had all the tools I needed and a lift too. It’s so much easier working at eye level instead ip and down in a crawler for four hours! A little pricey but not when you consider what it takes to run a business like this and keep it clean and well stocked. Thanks to Jason and the guys for the help w/ my project I will definitely be coming back. - 4/04/2020
Happy to review! We don't live in the Virginia Beach area anymore, but this was one place we'll actually miss! Great staff, help when you need it, all the tools you could need, and super clean. Great idea for a much needed service option! - 2/20/2019
Worked on my truck tonight. Dave and Doug were very helpful proving guidance and advise. Happy to have my vehicle riding well. Good experience. - 2/05/2019
Went there for the first time today, their shop is very clean and well maintained. They have every tool that you need to get the job done with both hand tools and power tools. The price for bay rental is affordable and The people there were extremely helpful and pretty cool at the same time. I definitely recommend the shop. - 4/06/2017
What a great spot! I will definitely be back, as I enjoy tinkering on my vehicles and saving money by doing my own maintenance/repairs. I took some front suspension in to use the wall-mounted spring compressor. 45 minutes and $5.60 later, I had the springs on the new struts. The guys running the shop are happy to jump in and assist with things if desired, the place is super clean and organized, and the garage is well-stocked with a great selection of quality tools. A place like this is a great asset to this area! - 6/22/2017
This is a great idea. Back in the seventies there was a place in Columbus, Ohio where you could use a bay with a lift. Came in very handy a couple of times. - 2/14/2020
Saved $400 on my first time at DIYG! Amazing facility. Clean, organized and professional. They've thought of everything to make the experience great. The staff was extremely helpful and spent the time to teach this non-mechanic. Veteran owed! - 7/22/2017
If my garage was as well stocked as this place, I would be a happy man! I went in for some front end repair, and was able to get what I needed to get done WAAY quicker than what would have been possible if I was doing it in my garage. These guys hit the nail on the head when it comes to an amazing experience--they were there to talk me through stuff, had every tool I could have ever thought of needing, and was an all-around good time. The guys came by every once in a while to check on me, but I'm more of a loner when it comes to wrenching, and I think they saw it because they left me alone for the most part. I will DEFINITELY be back to this garage in the future. Fair price, good atmosphere, great people. Thanks DIYG! - 1/13/2018
Good news! I replaced a wheel hub and bearing assembly on my 2010 Malibu. My car no longer sounds like a helicopter.
Bad news: steering knuckle is extremely corroded needs to be replaced.
Decent news: plenty of salvage parts from accidents, and the knuckles are usually in really good shape only ~$100 at most.
Awesome help was provided by David @ the London Bridge location! Awesome place, awesome business model, great tools, and Amazing assistance by very knowledgeable technicians!
#americanDIYG - 4/02/2019
Stopped in to swap out my shocks and compressor. The place was like a big kids playground! All the tools I needed and an employee was always out there helping me with the right tools and strategies to get the job done when they realized I had little knowledge (but atleast more then the last person to work on it). Overall, can't wait to go back for more repairs/upgrades. - 12/20/2019
The guys at the shop and friendly. Always checking to make sure you have all the tools to do the job. - 3/01/2017
Thanks for all the help today changing the auxiliary fan on my ride. Made things super easy and done a lot faster than in my own garage. - 9/19/2017
Stopped by to see the space and was blown away by the layout, professionalism of owners/staff, and the can-do spirit of the place. Highly recommend and will be spending a few weekends doing projects here.
Hampton Roads has been needing a place like this for a long time. Glad they are here! - 3/05/2017
Great place to work on your car. The staff is super helpful. They have tons of tools to get the job done. I've been there 3 times already. It's nice to have a place where you can get access to tools and a lift for a fair price away from the weather. I'm sure I'll be back. - 1/15/2017
First time there went in to do a water pump... everything in there was very clean and organized! The staff was very friendly and helpful, I will definitely be going back to work on my other two vehicles! - 1/16/2018
One of the most pleasant and productive experiences I've ever had working on my car. These guys are great. If you do ANY work on your car, you'd be a fool not to go here. An absolute deal. Like working on your car with a friend!! I cannot recommend this place enough!!Went back again to DIY to work on my fluids. And I had bought the wrong oil. Guess what? They're even better than I thought. The Garage contacted a local auto parts store and had the oil delivered while I did something else on the car. The DIY garage bailed me out ! I cannot stress how great this place is.American DIY Garage makes working on your car fun again!!! - 2/20/2019
Stopped by to change the shocks and struts on the Honda. While there ended up putting in a new radiator also. Had every tool needed and the staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Got a quote from a garage to do the work and ended up saving myself a little over a thousand dollars by doing it myself. Will definitely be back! Thanks - 9/26/2017
Nice place and people. They had all of the equipment i needed to complete my exhaust work and well worth the price compared to purchasing all the tools i didn’t have... nor did i want to purchase. - 5/20/2019
The place to be, great hours and support. Even if you have a garage, this place will support all your mechanic needs. - 2/20/2019
Oh man, what can I begin to say about this wonderful place. The Staff is awesome, the facilities are the best, and the tools are really good to work with. The most impressive thing about DIYG are the people. They are very knowledgeable, and they are not afraid to get their hands dirty. I've always had a awesome experience everytime I've been there. They got a life long customer with me. - 3/20/2019
This is such an awesome place to come work on your car. I came here to install a new exhaust downpipe on my Subaru WRX. The place was very clean, very organized, and there was no smoking by the staff in the garage as I have encountered at a competitor.One of the staff members, without being obligated, helped me quite a bit on the install and shared his passion for cars and automotive work. The staff makes you feel comfortable and doesn't make you feel bad to ask a "dumb question". I learned a whole lot by coming here.I would recommend this shop to anyone who wants to work on their car to simply fix an issue or as a hobby. - 2/20/2019
Excellent place to wrench on your vehicle. Staff is very helpful, tools boxes well stocked, bays are clean and bright. Can't say enough good things about this place! - 2/02/2018
I changed my oil, my break pads and rotors here. Best experience to learn here because the guys made sure I wasn't going to kill myself when I left the shop. I wished this place was in Houston, TX - 3/20/2019
My experience at this place was outstanding! Great staff , great looking place , and every tool possible for one great price. You just can't beat it ! Will recommend to all car lovers who love working on there vehicle. - 2/15/2018
Awesome place. What a great way to be able to make your own vehicle repairs. They had all the tools I needed plus the use of a lift made it faster and easier. Garage was clean and well organized. Technical support was spot on. Just a great experience. I'll definitely be back next time I need to make more repairs - 2/29/2020
This place is awesome. My first time here and I will be back. Thanks to everyone Wayne and Deb for the help. I will be back. - 9/30/2017
Really cool atmosphere and a very nice place work on your ride. - 2/20/2018
The best and easiest time I've ever had working on a car. Well worth the drive over. The atmosphere(yes, it's like taking your car on a date) is outstanding. The staff is very helpful and laid back. Every tool you could possibly need right at you fingertips. It was a lot of fun and I'll definitely be back and recommend you. - 2/20/2018
