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
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
Booked online to reserve a lift online for the next morning & not even 10mins later I got a confirmation response. When we got there we were shown around & met some of the staff - very friendly & down to help. Everything went so smooth. We will definitely be coming back! - 3/10/2019

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Thank You Guys Ryan F- - 2/06/2020
I have been trying to figure out what went awry with my new turbo set up. The staff has been more than helpful AND.... they have every tool I’ve needed! - 10/21/2018
Awesome experience at American DIYG! Staff and facility were top notch. Will definitely be back again! - 10/13/2017
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
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
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
Went for the first time on 09/14/18 to replace all four struts on my 2018 Toyota Camry. Not having any knowledge of what I was doing and only review YouTube videos. The staff walked me thru every step and assisted when I was having issues. They made sure I had everything I need to finish the installs. I will be returning to work on my car again and have have recommended it to all my girlfriends who are interested in doing there own car repairs. - 9/17/2018
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 nice place to work on your car. - 7/10/2019
First time using American Do it Yourself Garage! Staff and owners super helpful. Took Aidan to make it a father and son experience! Momma needed new struts and shocks on Nissan Sentra. Thanks Steve Linda Sean (hope I spelled your name right Sean! ) and Doug for a great experience!!! Will certainly be back! - 12/02/2018
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
Organized and efficient garage setup! - 6/20/2019
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
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
Love this place. I heard about this company at the local Night Moves Car Show a while ago and never had the chance to come check it out until I had to do an oil change on a car. For a college student who does not have all of the tools necessary here on campus, its absolutely phenomenal to do simple to complicated jobs. From the tool quality to the character quality of the employees, I 100% recommend this business. - 4/05/2018
This place is absolutely amazing. I’m not very car savvy but I wasn’t trying to pay dealership prices for a strut replacement so I figured I’d do it myself. I stumbled upon this place and I’m so thankful I did. Wayne and Dave(?) were super helpful, answered all of the many, many questions I had and was really patient, which for someone who had no idea what they were doing, im thankful for. Wayne even helped me on some parts of the strut replacement I wasn’t to sure about or had a hard time figuring out which I thought was awesome. They have basically any tool you would need and plenty of space to do any job you need done, and the shop itself is extremely clean. I would definitely recommend this place, and will for sure be coming back for all future DIY repairs. This place truly was a big save. 🙏🏻 - 1/02/2019
What a great experience! Thank you to the whole team at ADIYG!!! We will return! - 11/12/2018
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
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
Great place to work on you vehicle. Very clean shop. Lists of tools. And best yet very friendly and knowledgeable staff! - 9/20/2019
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
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
This place is a gem for anyone who likes to work on their own car. I live in an apartment which makes it difficult to do my own work. The place is always clean and neat, the staff is super friendly and alway willing to point you in the correct direction, and they have every tool you need to do your project right. Oh and of course who can forget those beautiful shop puppies. I would recommend this place to anyone (at any skill level) who wants to do their own work on their ride. - 4/29/2018
Great Veteran run business, always there to assist with work. - 1/26/2019
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
Great people running DIY! Clean shop and have probably all the tools you would need. They also have a knowledgeable staff if you need any help. Money well spent, buy using the shop I saved all the labor and parts markup. The mechanic shop wanted to charge 1260.00 to replace the front struts, and rear shocks. I purchased everything from rock auto for 250.00 and it only took 1.5 hours to replace everything. So with the availability of DIY and tools, I only spent 285.00, that is a large savings. I will use this DIY Garage again.
DIY Garage, thank you

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
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
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
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
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
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
this place has all the tools that you'll need plus very helpful and knowledgeable staff - 11/20/2019
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
Nice spot just got the club membership can’t wait to get the club up there - 2/18/2018
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
Wonderful place to work on your car!!!!!! - 2/20/2019
Excellent shop for anyone willing to get their hands dirty. The bay setup and tools are all you need to get it done and the staff is extremely helpful. They're there to make your project a success, so don't be afraid to do it yourself. - 11/16/2019
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
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
Awesome shop with everything you need. Very clean and very professional. Best place for all you do it yourself types. - 11/10/2018
The best place to go!the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.wouldnt go to any other place - 3/20/2019
Incredible place with wonderful people operating it. - 2/20/2019
Excellent place to wrench on your vehicle. Staff is very helpful, tools boxes well stocked, bays are clean and bright. Can't say enough good things about this place! - 2/02/2018
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
Great group of people, fair prices, and basically all you need to DIY whatever you want. - 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
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
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
Great place! Clean! friendly staff all the tools you could need what else could you ask for! Put level kit on my 4runner was in and out - 11/03/2017
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Happy to review! We don't live in the Virginia Beach area anymore, but this was one place we'll actually miss! Great staff, help when you need it, all the tools you could need, and super clean. Great idea for a much needed service option! - 2/20/2019
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
Great shop, great price, and friendly staff. It's superior to Oceana Hobby Shop - 2/09/2019
These guys make you feel right at home. - 2/20/2019
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
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
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
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
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
This shop is amazing! A great group of guys there and they are super helpful. The shop has everything you need to do just about anything. I’ll never do larger projects to my vehicle in my driveway again. DIY saved me so much time, money (including my swear jar) and effort. - 6/30/2018
Great idea!!! I wish we had one of these years ago!!! - 7/20/2016
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
The fact that they have a lift, air tools, and extremely organized stations made this place amazing. - 2/20/2019
Every person that does their own auto repairs should do it here. - 8/20/2019
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 place good pricing, tools are in good condition and place is always clean which is nice. - 2/20/2018
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
Awesome place for novice or experienced. Super friendly staff that actually helps if needed. Awesome concept! Will recommend to everyone and will return again myself! - 11/18/2019
I just came here tonight which is Thursday, February 14, 2019 outside talking on the phone accidentally put my elbow or an old Jeep Cherokee which had a sign on the side of the vehicle say DIY garage dude came out was really rude told me to get my elbow off his car which I understand it’s not my car and I should’ve not done it but it could’ve been a little bit nicer, and then when I was done with my phone conversation I walked in the office nobody was there I stood there for a good five so minutes still nobody came so I left I’m not impressed first impression is gone with me I came there just to do an all change and was not impressed, place looks cool though - 2/20/2019
Awesome experience! Super cool facility! Excellent service with hard working staff that lends a hand if needed. First class from start to finish! - 11/20/2019
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
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
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
The staff r knowledgeable n eager to offer expert advise. Very friendly atmosphere - 5/19/2019
Great experience all the tools I needed - 8/20/2019
Excellent staff and services! Finally got the definitive answer on what's wrong with my Silverado. Thanks guys sooooo much!!! - 10/10/2018
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
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
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
changed my 02 sensor at the diy garage helpful people will come back soon. - 12/02/2018
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
The greatest places to do work on your own car if your into too it - 2/20/2019
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
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
They are the best. Very reliable. - 2/20/2018
Needed to replace upper & lower ball joints, front and rear shocks, and potentially rear drum brakes. Turned out that I had plenty of life left on the brakes and only an adjustment was necessary($ back in returns). I saved hundreds if not thousands tackling the issues with my dodge myself and with the help of a friend. Due to minimal experience and video prep we encountered some major hiccups throughout the process. Couldn’t get the ball joints out manually so opted to replace the control arms altogether, which they ordered for me on the spot and had them delivered within a few hours. If not for the extremely helpful guidance from the employees at American DIYG I would have never been able to put the truck back together. They advised on the necessary steps and equipment, which was all provided, to complete the work.
Even though I spent much more time than I intended the first day I still saved big time and learned a whole lot. All of the employees are responsive, knowledgeable, and willing to lend a hand or tip where necessary. So long as I’m capable to handle the project I won’t go anywhere else to work on my vehicles. You absolutely can’t go wrong choosing them for your next project. - 5/27/2019
First time going there and I fell in love with place. I work in a machine shop.
So I know how important it is to have all the right tools. And they do. They're very helpful when you need a hand. They are very friendly and professional.
I plan on doing most of my vehicles maintenance there. - 2/01/2018
The guys working there were friendly and really liked the garage. Will go back. - 2/20/2018

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
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.

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
they got me in super last second. bays were clean and organized they had everything I needed. service was great. highly recommend to anyone. - 4/13/2019
Great people! Went in to do motor mounts and trans mount on my 06 GTO. They had every tool imaginable. The facility is extremely clean and everything is well organized. Owner and employees treat you like family. Plus if you’re a dog lover, they have 2 of the sweetest Golden retrievers to greet you at the front door. Would recommend this place to anyone! - 1/13/2018
Great 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
Seriously - great, awesome, helpful staff and top notch facility & equipment. Do it. - 6/26/2017
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
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
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
Stopped in to swap out my shocks and compressor. The place was like a big kids playground! All the tools I needed and an employee was always out there helping me with the right tools and strategies to get the job done when they realized I had little knowledge (but atleast more then the last person to work on it). Overall, can't wait to go back for more repairs/upgrades. - 12/20/2019
Scheduled a lift and was greeted upon arrival. If you're a DIYer or even slightly mechanically inclined this place is for you! Great people, tools and facilities! Highly recommend this business! - 2/03/2018
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
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
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
Outstanding facility, a wrencher’s DREAM!!! Just wish it wasn’t 3.5hrs from me!!! If you factor in typical labor fees, and time tracking down and gathering tools/parts, this place pays for itself in minutes. It’s SO good, I’m considering driving the 3.5 hrs just to do my work here. - 11/19/2017
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
ADIYG is more than just a great place to work on your vehicles. From having the right tools to having a great team of people to help, it is the perfect place for keeping your ride running smooth. - 5/12/2019
The guys at the shop and friendly. Always checking to make sure you have all the tools to do the job. - 3/01/2017
I would recommend American Do it yourself garage to anyone who likes working in their own vehicle or even anyone who wants to learn. I went in to get a code read that my amazon unit wouldn’t read. In and out in 15 minutes. Saved me 100 over AAA or any other service center diagnostic code. I didn’t have the time to have one of their preferred vendors bring me a part, but I’ll be back to install the new part when I pick one up. Thanks for the cupcake, too. - 8/31/2019
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
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
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
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 price - 2/20/2018
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

What an awesome place! Great rates, nice staff who is willing to help, and the cleanest garage ever. Highly recommended. - 8/08/2017
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
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
Awful service. No idea how they are still open. - 2/13/2020
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
Loved it. Great equipment. Great staff. My nee go to shop when i want to work on my car. - 3/25/2017
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
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
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
Went in yesterday for first time and they have everything and anything you need to get your vehicle fixed plus they have people there to help if you get stuck on something. Highly recommend going there. - 3/13/2017
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
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
Great staff, very knowledgeable , super clean place and should have just about any tool you need to get the job done … thanks again - 3/01/2019
Very nice place and nice people. Even helped out while taking off my exhaust. - 5/05/2019
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
Awesome experience. Those guys rock it in VB - 11/15/2018
These people are so amazing! They are very nice and extremely knowledgeable. I had to change the break pads, rotors, and calipers on all four wheels of my Nissan Altima and they helped me with all of it. Any questions they answered very well and made sure I knew exactly what I was doing. They showed me step by step how to do it. I could not have done it without them. Very clean and organized workstations and the lift bays made everything extremely easy. I also had a messed up tire stud that was messed up while getting new tires and rims. I had an appointment to get it fixed by the people that accidentally broke it. They saw this and helped me fix it up so that I was driving safer until my appointment. They are amazing people and I will definitely be coming back to do any work I need to do. Thank you guys so much!!! - 8/13/2018
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
Awesome experience! Great service and saves lots of money! I will definitely be back! - 8/29/2019
Great place to do some of your own work. Perfectly organized and a lot of knowledgeable help on hand. All you need is your car and your parts! - 1/20/2020
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
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
Awesome place and professional help with any of your car's problem, they saved me $200, thanks Steve and crew! - 9/03/2017
Great facility and awesome staff. I didn't have the specialty tools needed to finish a wheel bearing replacement and they had everything I needed. Great prices too. I will definitely come back the next time I need to work on any of my cars. - 2/20/2019
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
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
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
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
Most convenient place to do it yourself! I had a wonderful first experience. And i will be coming back!! - 3/09/2018
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
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
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
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
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 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
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
Great place to get some work done with a lift and all tools, etc. Was able to help a friend get his BMW lowered in a few hours with ease.
Highly recommended! - 1/14/2017
This 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
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
Place is awesome and staff helped us out when we would get stuck on something we couldn’t get done ourselves! - 1/20/2020
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
This garage is absolutely awesome! The staff is very friendly and helpful! I definitely will be back! Highly recommend! - 7/09/2018
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
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
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
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
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
THE BEST PLACE TO WORK ON AUTOMOBILES I WILL ALWAYS BRING MY VEHICLE HERE AWESOME STAFF!! - 1/14/2017
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
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
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
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
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
Very clean and organized. Staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Cute dogs on site as well. - 1/27/2018
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
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
