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
Awesome place and professional help with any of your car's problem, they saved me $200, thanks Steve and crew! - 9/03/2017
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
This place has every tool you could need to get your car fixed. The staff is kind, helpful, and very knowledgeable. Absolutely would recommend. - 2/20/2019

amazing group of people. with amazing knowledge and always willin to help will always have my business. - 2/15/2020
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
Place is awesome and staff helped us out when we would get stuck on something we couldn’t get done ourselves! - 1/20/2020
Awesome experience. Those guys rock it in VB - 11/15/2018
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
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
The guys were so helpful in assisting me with any questions i had. - 12/19/2019
Very nice place and nice people. Even helped out while taking off my exhaust. - 5/05/2019
Outstanding place, highly recommended! I went in to change 4 brakes and was blown away by how well maintained the location is. The on site employees were always willing to point out a better way to do the work and lend a hand when I was sruck--- outstanding customer service!! - 8/04/2019
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
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
Super clean facility with everything you need. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and Sprinkles is there for calming energy when things just aren't progressing as you hoped! Big thank you to Wayne Tugwell for assisting us in our battle with the transfer case modifications yesterday... we couldn't have done it without you! - 3/25/2019
Great group of people, fair prices, and basically all you need to DIY whatever you want. - 2/20/2019
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 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
Loved it. Great equipment. Great staff. My nee go to shop when i want to work on my car. - 3/25/2017
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
Super impressed with American DIY garage. What an awesome spot! This is the cleanest shop I’ve ever seen and they have every tool you could ever need.
Wayne seriously went above and beyond in helping me install a CB radio and new grab handles for my Jeep... or maybe I helped him... either way, I was very grateful for his knowledge and patience!!
I will definitely be back soon and tell everyone how much money they can save by coming to American DIY. Thanks again Wayne!!! - 5/07/2019
Totally awesome. Wish I found this place sooner. Great looking place, has literally everything you could possibly need. I'll they need is to invest in a alignment rack and I'd never have to go to a shop ever again. And they got two super adorable dogs hahah - 1/15/2017
Fantastic facility with a knowledgeable, friendly and helpful staff. When I want to work on my truck Dottie but need a lift or some air tools, this is the only place I go. (Special shout out to Wayne for being so patient with me!). - 2/20/2019
These guys make you feel right at home. - 2/20/2019
Awesome experience at American DIYG! Staff and facility were top notch. Will definitely be back again! - 10/13/2017
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
The guys at the shop and friendly. Always checking to make sure you have all the tools to do the job. - 3/01/2017
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Most convenient place to do it yourself! I had a wonderful first experience. And i will be coming back!! - 3/09/2018
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
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
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
Every person that does their own auto repairs should do it here. - 8/20/2019
This place is truly an American garage! Everything I need is here. It makes any project easy to finish. Great place! - 2/20/2019
Nice spot just got the club membership can’t wait to get the club up there - 2/18/2018
Very helpful and friendly staff. Facility has all the basic tools you need. Definitely will return next time I need to do maintenance. - 11/09/2019
Wonderful place to work on your car!!!!!! - 2/20/2019
Great shop area to get your work done. All the tools and supplies you need, and a little help if required! - 5/22/2018
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Awesome experience! Great service and saves lots of money! I will definitely be back! - 8/29/2019
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
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
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
I went there will my buddy and we had no clue what we were doing. Thankfully the staff there was very helpful and they were not super busy so they stayed around with us and showed us what all we had to do and how to do it. It is the best place for a novice car worker to get and have anything they could ever need. We had to drop the transmission and they were right there with the transmission jack ready and they provided us all the support we could need. Highly recommend them. - 4/20/2018
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
I used once to put K&N kit on my car great place to work all the tools you need very courteous and knowledge staff Reasonable price will used more in the future And great guard dog - 11/25/2018
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
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
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
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
Stopped by earlier today to change my girlfriend's brakes on her Honda Accord. First time in after passing by a while back and making note of it. First look inside and you'll see how nice of a "work environment" you have at your hands. We were shown around and told of the prices and availability of the tools which are all VERY organized(very much like an aviation wotk shop, for the military guys/girls). They have everything from lifts and air tools, to brake cleaner and a media blasting cabinet. Their webite is very informative in itself. Guys that were working here are both cool guys and very helpful gearheads/retired military themselves. Took just under an hour to change her front brakes, thy how orgained it is here! Will definitely be back to work on my own vehicle in the future. Thanks guys! - 2/20/2017
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
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
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.

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
This place is awesome! I needed new brake pads and rotors, but really couldn't afford what any mechanic was charging. I was nervous about doing it myself, but when I got to American DIY one Sunday afternoon everyone was very helpful. They gave me tips on the best way to get the job done and they have any tool you may need and more! I will certainly be back. Thanks again!! - 8/25/2018
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
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
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
The professional staff and chill clean environment. - 8/20/2019
everyone is so helpful in answering questions you may have and are there to help if you need it . - 10/26/2019
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
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
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
DIY GARAGE ROCKS...PERIOD. Awesome facilty, awesome staff. Dont struggle in your driveways...get over to DIY and do it like the pros. Oil and filter change, tires rotated in less than an hour. Yup DIY ROCKS.
Beach - 5/13/2018
This place had all the tools i needed to do the job, with a friendly and helpful staff. The facility is immaculate and well appointed. - 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
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
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
Such a nice place to be. Decent tools. Good selection. The staff was helpful and nice. Well worth the money I spent. I will be back if I ever need to use a lift or a place to work - 11/26/2016
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
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
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
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
this place has all the tools that you'll need plus very helpful and knowledgeable staff - 11/20/2019
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
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
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
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
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
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 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
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
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
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
Can't say enough about the helpful friendly staff at this place. I live in D.C. but come to Va beach on the weekends. I needed to change a bad wheel bearing on my BMW. Took me and their staff over 6 hours before we were able to get this thing off and replaced. They even stayed open late for me to finish the job. Cant say enough about the professional mechanic that helped me out. I highly recommend this for any repair needs small or big. The place was amazingly clean and they have every tool imaginable.Thanks again! - 2/20/2017
Great place to git-r-done!! - 2/20/2017
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
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
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
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
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
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 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
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 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

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
Stopped by to check it out 2 weeks ago. Came back today to sandblast a couple parts. This place is awesome! Very organized, clean and well lit. Staff was great. Definitely will be back for a larger job on my mustang. - 3/15/2017
You guys are AMAZING! I spent just over four hours today replacing my A/C compressor, condenser, receiver/drier and all lines with parts I ordered online from rock auto to a grand total of $536.40. After talking with you guys at the shop I decided to call a local dealership to get a price quote to replace the same items, I JUST got off the phone with them and they advised it would be an ALL DAY repair to the tune of $2400!!!! Thank you so much for providing this great service and the awesome hospitality! - 6/12/2017
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

Came here based off of a recommendation from a friend and I couldn’t be happier taking their advice. American DIY Garage is awesome! The owners and staff are extremely welcoming and hospitable. Came in for an oil change today, but I’m sure I’ll be back for more. They have definitely earned my patronage. - 12/21/2019
Great prices, great people, expert advice, occasional assistance, and a very friendly staff. Will be returning. - 10/28/2016

The greatest places to do work on your own car if your into too it - 2/20/2019
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
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
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
Very clean and organized. Staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Cute dogs on site as well. - 1/27/2018
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
Really cool atmosphere and a very nice place work on your ride. - 2/20/2018
Friendly and awesome people. They would even help/guide how to work on your car if you need help! - 3/20/2019
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
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 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
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
Had a big job on my truck DIYG was there for me with the tools and help when I needed it. They very friendly and Knowledgeable. Thanks DIYG. - 1/06/2020

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
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! - 9/20/2019
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
The team here is extremely helpful and knowledgeable, not only do they know about most cars but will recommend better solutions to anything issues. I recommend it here to all of my friends with car Maintenance and repairs. - 1/20/2020
What an awesome place! Great rates, nice staff who is willing to help, and the cleanest garage ever. Highly recommended. - 8/08/2017

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
American Do It Yourself Garage is my number one choice for doing my own repairs on my vehicles. The shop is spacious and clean. They have a tool crib for custom tools, a tool box and work bench at every bay that contains a full set of common tools, and a friendly and expert crew willing to help when needed. Save big bucks and learn new skills. I would recommend American DIY Garage any day! - 4/20/2019
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
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
Very friendly and attentive staff. Super cool, laid back atmosphere. Great overall experience. � - 7/19/2018
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
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
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
Great Veteran run business, always there to assist with work. - 1/26/2019
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
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
Great place to go and work on your vehicle if you need to be out of the elements or need tools! Very clean place and amazing people! I Will definitely go again! - 1/16/2018
Amazing to be able to go in get out of the cold and be able to do a quick oil change and tire rotation. - 12/20/2019
A great place to fix or work on your car!!!!! - 2/20/2019
Great shop very clean and great customer service! Definitely will come again!Dwight R. - 2/29/2020
Clean - 6/09/2020
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
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
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
Best do it yourself garage I've ever seen. Very clean work environment and friendly staff willing to help with whatever you need help with. Not expensive at all. And they have all the tools you would need for any job. Most definitely going back highly recommend checking it out. - 2/10/2017
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
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
Just got back from replacing my ball joints, tie rods, and shocks American Do It Yourself Garage. The staff was incredibly helpful, the entire place was clean, and every tool I needed was right there. I will definitely be coming here again in the future and highly recommend ADIY to anyone! - 9/30/2017
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
If your looking to save money are a do it yourselfer or are just plain tired of the dealers and know you can buy the parts and do it yourself come here. They're awesome people and really nice. And have people on staff to help. *edit* I had to change out two wheel and hub bearings drivers side came out fine with David and Jared's help. Passenger side one required pulling off the whole axle, but thanks to Jared and sir Jason for helping me with that whole fiasco, they kept assuring me after I insisted I had the worlds most difficult car that what I had was nothing and was normal. Seven hours later i had a new set of wheel and hub bearings installed. Thank you guys I'll be sure to return again. - 3/01/2020
Brought my Miata in for my first visit and knocked out some lowering springs in a few hours. Staff is very helpful and for only $20 an hour for a flat bay, you can’t beat it. - 5/27/2019
Awesome place...Would definitely recommend !!! - 3/07/2020
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
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
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
It's a great place to work on your vehicle and the staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Great experience and I would highly recommend this place - 2/20/2019
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 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

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
Just went in for a simple inspection of a new used car and it was a great environment great tools had no issues with anything there. They take their time to show you where everything is and are readily available if you ask for anything. Great experience and will be recommending to many people - 3/26/2018
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
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
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.

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
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

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 place is awesome! They had every tool I needed to get the job done in a beautiful, clean, and organized shop with a courteous and VERY helpful staff. I've always wished for a shop like this close to my house. I'll be back! - 3/06/2017

Great environment and has all the tools you need. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff! Will definitely go again! - 2/17/2018
Truly recommended. They have the tools. Staff is incredibly helpful. There's a soda machine. If you're looking to save money to bypass your dealership and learn, this place is righteous. - 7/29/2018
ADIY garage was a life savor, they had what I needed to complete the job I started in my driveway in a lot less time, all before they closed for the night. The guys were great and without their help, I wouldn't have finished on time. Will definitely be visiting again. - 9/19/2017
