Pricey but in a pinch......its the only go to DIY garage. Unless you have base access.....The team there is Good to Go - 2/20/2019
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
Brought my car in for front brake pads to get out of the cold for a chance. First time being here and i absolutely loved it! I haven't been in a shop setting in a very long time so doing work on my car hasnt exactly been a fun thing for me. These guys have a great tool kitbready for you with air tools and hydrologic lifts and everything you could need. Absolutely going back again. - 1/18/2018
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
Awesome experience at American DIYG! Staff and facility were top notch. Will definitely be back again! - 10/13/2017
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
Friendly, knowledgeable staff in a clean well organized atmosphere. All the tools required for the task was readily available. Extremely well priced and managed. - 6/15/2019
Nice facility with honest personnel! I enjoyed the experience and I'm headed back for another project as soon as they open. - 9/22/2017
Excellant experience & fantastic staff. owner is very personable, the shop is brand new and clean. i was very impressed with the layout & all the amenities. the owner & staff went above and beyond. highly recommend. great price for what is offered & available to use. - 12/01/2018
amazing group of people. with amazing knowledge and always willin to help will always have my business. - 2/15/2020
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
Been here twice now, exceptional service is a understatement with these guys. I came in with a fuel leak and these stand up guys did everything under the sun to get me the parts I needed to proper patch on the punctured line until the official Mercedes part got in...and that was only the first time doing business with them. Their facility is top notch, they're knowledgeable and willing to help no matter the task, the prices ain't bad at all, and they're genuinely good folks. They'll see plenty of me in the future to come. If you're looking to fix your ride and wanna support the little man, this is where you wanna go. - 2/20/2017
What a place! Very informative and super helpful staff. Those guys know everything. They have every tool you could try to think of and they partner with parts stores so if you get into a project and need a part they can have it delievered. The very best part is the shop dog Sprinkles. She’s so sweet! - 2/20/2019
Went there today to install 3" Polished Stainless Steel Side Step Bars on my new 2020 Chevy Colorado crew cab. I was very impressed with the staff and the cleanliness of the shop and all the bays. They had everything (tool wise) you could ever possibly need to work on your vehicle.This is an excellent resource for those who like to do their own work. The guys put my truck on the lift safely and even offered assistance to double check my work once completed. Great guys - I can't say enough about how pleased I am to find such a place. Will go back again to do some under work to my 1982 Corvette. Thanks again guys !!!! - 1/23/2020
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
Awesome place good pricing, tools are in good condition and place is always clean which is nice. - 2/20/2018
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
Great location, great equipment, and great staff. A buddy and I drove from the hellhole of Maryland to do a catback exhaust system install here; the staff was patient and helpful. Sergio in particular provided a wealth of information and straight up got hands on with the install, saving us during several crucial portions. Plus, I spent a 1/4 of the money I would to have someone else do it for me at a shop and walked away with the experience and peace of mind that no monkeys were banging around on my car for a few hours. Can't say enough about the experience. - 2/20/2017
Wowwww!!! Spoke with Steve about coming in early to change my Pathfinder blown Radiator....he was great to talk to ,very prompt n Proffessional, extremely helpful and Wayne was extremely kind n helpful!!!!!This place Rocks...Meticulous shop too, great people..will def be coming back..... HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Thank You Guys Ryan F- - 2/06/2020
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 just did a brake job on my Ford F-150 at American DIY Garage. Their staff could not have been nicer. I am an unbelievably picky dude, but the place was absolutely spotless.The tools were clean and perfectly organized. Help by the killer staff was readily available, in fact they came out a few times just to B.S. Not to mention the two of the nicest "junkyard dogs" I have ever seen. I would feel relatively comfortable tackling a bigger job, just for the hell of it. They turned a pain in the neck expensive brake job into an inexpensive, fun way to kill the morning. I may right another review to give them five more stars, to give them the ten they earned. Keep up the great work. See you soon. - 2/20/2018
I've come here twice now. The staff is friendly and helpful, and answer all questions I have. when I didn't know how to do something, someone stood by and explained what tools I'd need and would help take something apart and put it back together. They have every tool you could possibly need, too! there are several lifts available and flat bays. If you need a part they'll order it.
bonus - occasionally there is a lovely sweet shop dog.
10/10 will come again! - 11/25/2018
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
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
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
These guys make you feel right at home. - 2/20/2019

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
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
The guys working there were friendly and really liked the garage. Will go back. - 2/20/2018
Great experience all the tools I needed - 8/20/2019
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
Very clean and organized. Staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Cute dogs on site as well. - 1/27/2018
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
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
Great place to work on your vehicle! Debbie and Wayne were friendly and very helpful. Wayne even jumped in to lend a hand while installing a new exhaust system on my car. Shop was clean and all the tools are quality and in great condition. I highly recommend using American DIY Garage! I will be back for my next project/maintenance needs. - 9/02/2017
Perfect environment to work for the DIYer. Clean, organized and accessible, it hits all the points of a great garage. - 3/11/2018
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
Very friendly and attentive staff. Super cool, laid back atmosphere. Great overall experience. � - 7/19/2018
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
This place is great for the guy or gal that wants to save money and trusts themselves more than a shop! Great staff and great facilities! Will be returning for any and all projects I have! - 11/10/2019
the staff is helpful and help keep thw mood light when things start going the wrong way, clean place, can do almost any project with the tools and equipment they have. really ideal for the people qho take pride in doing their own work - 11/15/2017
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
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
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
Doing a head gasket on my 05 Cummins and they have all the tools needed. Clean shop and super helpful staff. Pricing is great as well. - 9/01/2018
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
Very well equipped, extremely clean, and the staff at ADIYG are excellent! I recently rented a lift bay, (they supply just about any tool you can think of too), and replaced my car's radiator fan for a little over half what the dealer wanted. Absolutely great for those who can do some repairs & maintenance and want to save money. - 2/20/2019
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. - 12/18/2019
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
Great spot. $upport locals when u can - 11/24/2018
Great environment and has all the tools you need. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff! Will definitely go again! - 2/17/2018
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 staff. Very knowledgeable. Very clean and great equipment.
👍👍👍👍👍 - 4/13/2019
This garage is absolutely awesome! The staff is very friendly and helpful! I definitely will be back! Highly recommend! - 7/09/2018
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
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 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
Absolutely a great experience! Everyone was super nice and helpful! Having everything needed readily available makes the job soooooo much easier. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back. The facility is outstanding. It was clean and everything was in its place. This is a top notch operation and I would recommend it to anyone. - 7/24/2018
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
I love this place!! They have everything you could need and more. Always great customer service!!! - 10/01/2017
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
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
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. - 8/26/2017
Good place! Big bays, clean, lifts if you want. They have most tools, all we needed, air tools, all organized. Helpful w advice, (they're not supposed to do stuff for you.) We asked questions freely, got answers, they looked up stuff. Price seems good to me. People working on their car next to us tossed us good advice - a bunch of gear heads with tools in a shared space. Good experience. - 6/20/2019
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
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. - 5/19/2019
If you ever need a well equipped place to work on your vehicles, this is the place to do it. This place rents out bays by the hour a nd that includes the tools and there are people there to help if you need them and their assistance is included. We replaced the front roters and brakes and the were very helpful to make sure we did it right and they were not shy to jump in and help. Great place, Great people and we will be going there to do more of the routine maintenance on our vehicles. We definitely recommend American DIYG to any one who wants to work on their vehicle without having to buy any tools and work in a real garage. They even put our car on the lift and brought it down. I'm telling you this is really a fantastic place to work in your vehicles, it's clean, organized and they have the equipment and tools. We are very grateful for all of the help we received and will be lifelong customers. - 4/20/2019
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! - 8/14/2018
Awesome shop with everything you need. Very clean and very professional. Best place for all you do it yourself types. - 11/10/2018
I am so glad my husband found this place. We've brought both of our cars there to work on them. The staff there is super helpful and I was amazed at how clean and organized the garage was. Over the weekend we had a problem with my car that kept it from running and was very difficult to diagnose. The staff there wouldn't give up on helping my husband figure out what it was. Over the past few months, they have helped us save thousands of dollars by not having to take or cars to a mechanic. I can't recommend them enough! - 6/04/2017
Such an awesome place to work on your vehicle. Clean and tons of tools to use for any project. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful staff - 1/20/2020
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
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
Great price - 2/20/2018
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
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
Poor service, tried to use military discount and wouldn’t let us due to the one paying was not military but the one helping us is Marines Vet. They wanted us to leave by 9 o’clock when they close at 10. Would not recommend going there unless last option. The tools there are very cheap and ratchets barley even ratchets. - 10/20/2019
Awesome shop! Great place to work on your car. A great selection of tools, well organized, and super helpful folks make car repair fun! - 12/28/2016
Really cool atmosphere and a very nice place work on your ride. - 2/20/2018
Everyone was awesome here, I came to swap an exhaust on my S2000, and replace rim, control arms, and toe link on my FD RX7. I’m not an expert by any means and they were super helpful with suggestions, guidance, and help. They have pretty much every tool you need and made my visit awesome. Will definitely be back! Tomorrow! Lol - 9/08/2018
Excellent tools and equipment. Clean and safe working environment. Friendly and helpful staff. Had everything I needed to replace the shocks and springs on the rear of my mini-van. My 20yr old daughter got to help out and learn more about vehicles. We will be returning in the next couple of weeks to replace CV axles and the front strut assemblies. Recommending this shop to all my co-workers. - 8/31/2018
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
Very helpful and caring! I was there to replace endlinks on the rear of my S60 R. The staff was excellent and checked in periodically to see how I was doing and if I needed anything. They really want you to succeed in whatever you want to do to your car. All the tools I needed were all there and organized neatly. However, the ratchet I used there was kind of flimsy because of how difficult it was to tighten or loosen. They also had Loctite Threadlocker Blue for me to use! The lift bay really makes life easier and was priced at a reasonable rate ($30/hr.)! - 3/15/2018
Brought my Jeep into one of the bays to do a spark plug tune up. Being a female it can be intimidating but they made me feel comfortable and I had lots of fun and learned a lot from the Jeep expert Wayne. The owners,staff (and dog) were all really nice and made sure I knew where everything was and that I was good to go. Everything is clean and organized. The shop dog Sprinkles made my day she was so sweet. I highly recommend this place to everyone. - 4/13/2019
Great Veteran run business, always there to assist with work. - 1/26/2019
Awesome staff who are supportive and always willing to lend a hand or share advice. Clean and well stocked tools, in a great clean shop! Been here many times already and will continue to be a customer. Great work guys! - 3/20/2019
This place is AWESOME! Definitely will return and do future work here. Jared and Wayne are super awesome and worked very hard to help me finish the work I was doing. Many thanks! � - 7/20/2017
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
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
Fantastic experience at the DIY Garage. Put an alternator in a Lincoln that was mounted underneath. Looking at YouTube, I think it would have taken me 4 hours getting under the car and back out to get the dozen different tools I needed. I was done in 2 hours at the DIY garage and not sure I could have actual gotten this done at home. I had to move the sway bar to get the bolt out far enough to remove the alternator as well as move a transmission line. Bring on a lift made it easy and tools right there made it fast. I asked what I was getting into by disconnecting the bar and they assured me it was no problem and helped me thru it. I'll definitely come back. - 5/11/2018
Staff is super friendly and a great place to fix a vehicle inside with all the tools and help you can get. - 2/25/2019
The greatest places to do work on your own car if your into too it - 2/20/2019
A great place to fix or work on your car!!!!! - 2/20/2019
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
Very convenient, great staff. Had incident while on vacation. Was able to stop in and replace a power steering pump for half the cost of dropping it off at a garage. Definitely would use again if needed. - 7/07/2019
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
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
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
Excellent service and knowledgeable staff! They helped out a ton and the tools were fantastic! Can't wait for more projects there! - 5/06/2018
went yesterday placed two CV half shafts customer service was great I needed a little bit of assistance on some things they were there to help me fully stocked on tools each Bay has its own tool box any special tool that you need they have definitely the place to go if you don't have access to equipment or you just don't feel like doing the repairs in your driveway. - 11/25/2018
Very friendly and helpful staff. I’ve come here a few times and the staff has always been very knowledgeable and willing to help. Great place! Would highly recommend to anyone who needs a place to work on their vehicle with more tools than you could imagine. - 2/20/2019
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
Fantastic! Very helpful! Great to work inside and save money doing it yourself! - 6/20/2019
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
This shop has a great atmosphere and staff. Ive never had to leave to get a tool, they have had everything, every time. The rate is not bad at all either. I've been reluctant to work on my car and learn a lot in the process.. and this has been a the perfect place to do it. They have water fountains, a waiting room and a soda machine. 5 Stars, A+ from me. - 2/20/2018
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
Love the shop. Saved me so much to be able to have the proper work environment. And the tools to get the job done. Will definitely be back. - 1/26/2018
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
Pristine garage, tools in great condition w/no missing parts, the kind of garage you would want for yourself, great service and very nice and helpful people. Perfect for those that have no tools and no place to work. - 1/30/2020
They have everything you need for the DIYer. Saves time vs being in your own driveway/garage. They also have impact tools which speed things up. - 1/20/2020
I had to make several repairs to my car and I chose to go to American Do it Yourself Garage. The entire staff is so very welcoming and helpful. I ran into some trouble and everyone took the time out to help me. If I did not have that expert help, I would have been there till 10 at night. They have all the the tools you would ever need. I highly recommend ADIYG to anyone who wants to save money and get their hands dirty, this is the spot for you. - 10/20/2019
Great place. We did a r&r on a bmw engine and tranny and was very helpful have a shop with plenty of room and tools. They also have specialty tools in case u get in a jam. The air hoses are great on reels and plenty of pressure. Might have to get a membership if we can get more work. - 10/17/2016
Loved it. Great equipment. Great staff. My nee go to shop when i want to work on my car. - 3/25/2017
Great place great people and have everything you should need for what you need to work on I defiantly recommend going there and will be going there again and again - 8/20/2016
Organized and efficient garage setup! - 6/20/2019
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
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
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
I have gotten good advice and a helping hand. When other DIY'ers are there, the experience and conversation is even better. Having access to a large selection of tools, and not having to lug your own around is a big plus. One time I had the wrong part, and getting a replacement delivered through the shop was quick and easy. - 12/20/2019
Excellent staff and services! Finally got the definitive answer on what's wrong with my Silverado. Thanks guys sooooo much!!! - 10/10/2018
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 there for the first time a couple weeks ago . people there were a great help and would probably wouldn't have finished my project without them . highly recommend and I'll be back for more - 10/23/2019

The professional staff and chill clean environment. - 8/20/2019
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
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
Had the absolute best experience here today, and know I will return for all my car work here again. Everyone is helpful and friendly, the place is spotless, they have air compressors at each of the bays, along with every tool you can think of (for me it was an 02 sensor socket and oil filter removal tool). I am far from a mechanic, but I enjoy doing my own work if it’s possible. And as a 59 year old woman, not one person commented about my age or gender. Truly refreshing to feel so welcome at a local business. Thank you all for a great experience. - 4/08/2018
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 the owners! love the crew! love the facility! love the rates! clean amazing great DIY garage!! - 6/29/2019
this place has all the tools that you'll need plus very helpful and knowledgeable staff - 11/20/2019
My husband has went there twice a he loves the garage, the tools are always available, garage is very neat, and the employees are always helpful. He plans on using them whenever he works on his vehicles in the future!!! 😍😀😍😀😍😉😎🚘🛠🔑 - 2/04/2017
David's the best he even gave me a $1 for a tea out the vending machine 🥰
great place to take your car lots of lifts , clean place , all tools you need , was in and out - 9/29/2019
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
Awesome experience. Those guys rock it in VB - 11/15/2018
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
It's so awesome! If you need it they got it. $20 a hour for all the tools you need. A nice clean bay. $30 a hour if lift is needed. If need a part they will call it in and have it brought to you unlike if your at home. This place is all go time and no down time. Deffently using them again! - 5/11/2017
They are the best. Very reliable. - 2/20/2018
This was my first visit to American diyg and I found there shop to be very clean and well stocked. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful I wouldn't hesitate to go there again or recomend it to friends. So if you need a place to do some repairs on your ride this is where to do it. - 2/13/2020
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
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
You won't find a better or friendlier place to do business with then American Do It Yourself Garage!!! If nothing else go check them out !!!!!!!!! - 2/06/2020
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
What a great experience! Thank you to the whole team at ADIYG!!! We will return! - 11/12/2018
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
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.

Excellent place to work on your vehicle! People there are very helpful and nice! Thank you once again for your support! We recommend!!!!! - 9/22/2019
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
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
just what this area needed - 3/26/2019
Amazing staff..very friendly, very helpful. can't recommend the place enough. They have the tools.. the computers.. the friendly staff and of course the Internet to help figure out any problem you have. more than worth going here first before taking it to a mechanic. Great place!!!! - 2/20/2018
Great place to do work on your car. The workers there show interest in what you are doing and are more than willing to help you with any questions you may have. Will definitely be returning for any future work that needs done to my car. - 7/04/2018
Excellent place to work on your own vehicle. Replaced the CV axle in my wife’s Volvo. They had every tool I needed. Friendly people and willing to help when they can. The ability to get parts delivered through their commercial account and added to your bill was incredibly convenient. I highly recommend this company to anyone who works in their own cars, trucks or motorcycles. - 12/03/2017
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
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
Friendly and awesome people. They would even help/guide how to work on your car if you need help! - 3/20/2019
Very clean shop. Great atmosphere and extremely helpful staff. Did a little suspension work today. They had the tools I needed and stopped by the bay regularly to check on progress and offer any assistance. Definitely recommend if you need a place to do some maintenance or repairs. - 9/15/2018
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. Thanks Steve Linda Sean (hope I spelled your name right Sean! ) and Doug for a great experience!!! Will certainly be back! - 12/02/2018
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
Stopped by earlier today to perform some routine maintenance on the daily driver. Saw ADIYG a few months back and made a note to check it out. Once inside i was pleasantly surprised to see the informative staff, ready to help and show us around. Spotless "work" environment, great prices, organized, spacious work area for any project, and quality tools just a few steps away from your vehicle. Again, friendly, informative staff(retired military and car enthusiasts themselves). Surely a place to stop in and check out! Great first experience and will definitely be back whether doing routine maintenance or to install some go fast goodies on the "toys." Thanks again guys! - 12/17/2016
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
This place is great!! We used this service on Sunday and had an amazing exsperience. I will tell everyone I know. They provide me with every tool needed to complete my mission. They are also veteran owned. Thank you and see you soon. - 11/21/2016
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
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
I just bought a 2nd hand car and needed to pull the wheels and see what the brakes looked like. Having met the owner and his wife a few weeks earlier at a Mustang show I thought about American DIY Garage and I made and an appointment and drove out and I was quite impressed. The shop is clean, the staff very welcoming, knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly, and a great set of tools, lifts, and everything else needed to work on cars. The shop even offers coffee and I'm talking man size cups, 16 or maybe 20 oz not the Dixie cup size you get at many repair shops. The employee who helped me was never far away when I needed something and tried to anticipate my needs without being intrusive. We talked as I was working and he offered many good tips which made the time go by quickly and made what I needed to do not seem like such a chore. The only thing the shop really needs is Heidi and I shared this with the staff and hopefully they will make this happen. Now guys if you don't know who Heidi is you may as just turn in your Man Cards because you have no business hanging around a car shop. :-) All kidding aside this is a great place with excellent equipment and staff and I will go back. - 5/28/2017
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
everyone is so helpful in answering questions you may have and are there to help if you need it . - 10/26/2019
This place is truly an American garage! Everything I need is here. It makes any project easy to finish. Great place! - 2/20/2019
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
Thanks to all at American DIYG. Always clean, organized, great service and everyone is friendly and helpful if an extra set of hands are needed. - 3/13/2018
Amazing staff. Every tool that you need they have it here. - 4/20/2019
Very nice place to work on your car. - 7/10/2019
Incredible place with wonderful people operating it. - 2/20/2019
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
Awesome place great for the Virginia Beach location. I just booked a bay over the phone. When I showed up all the tools that I needed were available the staff was friendly the place was clean. I will be back for further projects on both my vehicles. - 9/01/2019
This place has everything you need to fix any automotive issue you have! Get in a jam and they have mechanics on staff to help! Best experience!!! - 3/27/2017
Awesome place and professional help with any of your car's problem, they saved me $200, thanks Steve and crew! - 9/03/2017
Never seen any diy garage other than the ones one base but I have to say that this one is the best in terms of quality . it's very well kept and they have everything tool that you could possibly need been here twice and both times have been unforgettable amazing I recommend adiy garage to all of my friends . - 9/28/2018
Amazing service, and the employees are awesome. I’d definitely recommend anyone to this shop hands down. Need a tool? They have it. Need assistance? They’ll be right there to help you. The atmosphere here is wonderful. Not to mention there’s shop dogs, definitely a plus to an already amazing place � giving this garage 5 stars is truly an understatement. - 1/18/2018
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
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
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
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
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
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
The fact that they have a lift, air tools, and extremely organized stations made this place amazing. - 2/20/2019
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
American do it yourself garage is an outstanding facility. The guys in there are willing to help and their first class and everything they do. Highly recommend if you want to work on your vehicle that's the place to go. - 1/02/2020
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
Went there yesterday to change the oil in my truck and to tighten up the exhaust. Excellent experience. The staff was friendly, professional and knowledgable. The shop itself has everything you could possibly need to do minor or major repairs to your ride, not to mention its like a 9 bay man cave. Next time you do repairs to your ride work smarter not harder, get off your back and out of the elements and put the car/truck on a lift and make life easier. Gotta try it for yourself. - 3/20/2018
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
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 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
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
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
