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
What a great experience at DIYG. Everyone was very helpful and made it so much easier to get things done on my jeep. Would definitely recoomend this place! - 5/28/2019
Great place to work on you vehicle. Very clean shop. Lists of tools. And best yet very friendly and knowledgeable staff! - 9/20/2019
Great staff. Very knowledgeable. Very clean and great equipment.
👍👍👍👍👍 - 4/13/2019
Awesome service. Didn’t do any work my self, but Wayne helped me plug a tire. Also explained how the shop works and if I ever need anything I’m always welcome back. Bays and entire shop look beautiful. Highly recommend. - 7/08/2018
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
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
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
Amazing staff..very friendly, very helpful. can't recommend the place enough. They have the tools.. the computers.. the friendly staff and of course the Internet to help figure out any problem you have. more than worth going here first before taking it to a mechanic. Great place!!!! - 2/20/2018
Great environment and has all the tools you need. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff! Will definitely go again! - 2/17/2018
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
Really cool atmosphere and a very nice place work on your ride. - 2/20/2018
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
Cool place to work on car great layout and decor, awesome employees and great price also very cool to have a lot of tools you may not 10/10 recommend - 12/09/2018
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
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
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
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
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
amazing group of people. with amazing knowledge and always willin to help will always have my business. - 2/15/2020
excellent staff, they go out of the way to help if you need it. everything was clean and ready for use. I will be back soon for sure. - 3/04/2020
Stopped by earlier today to perform some routine maintenance on the daily driver. Saw ADIYG a few months back and made a note to check it out. Once inside i was pleasantly surprised to see the informative staff, ready to help and show us around. Spotless "work" environment, great prices, organized, spacious work area for any project, and quality tools just a few steps away from your vehicle. Again, friendly, informative staff(retired military and car enthusiasts themselves). Surely a place to stop in and check out! Great first experience and will definitely be back whether doing routine maintenance or to install some go fast goodies on the "toys." Thanks again guys! - 12/17/2016
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
The staff were super nice, attentive and helpful. I would recommend this place to any and all of my friends. Great atmosphere! - 2/20/2019
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 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
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
Awesome experience! Great service and saves lots of money! I will definitely be back! - 8/29/2019
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
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
I love this place!! They have everything you could need and more. Always great customer service!!! - 10/01/2017
Awesome staff, clean and organized garage. They even have a shop dog. - 4/19/2017
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
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
Incredible place with wonderful people operating it. - 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
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
went there for the first time a couple weeks ago . people there were a great help and would probably wouldn't have finished my project without them . highly recommend and I'll be back for more - 10/23/2019
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
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
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 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
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
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
Like doing your own work and don't want to pay an arm and leg for a repair shop then I strongly recommend the American DIYG. This facility has all the tools you would need at each stall. Whether you want a stall with a lift or one without a lift they have what you need to do your work (no alignment equip). They told me that there will have the capability to recharge you vehicle AC soon. The personnel working there are very knowledgeable and helpful. If you get stuck or just need an extra hand they are more than will to help. They will even order a part for you if you find you need something and have it delivered there. I just recently used the facility and was extremely impressed with the quality of the tools that made available to you to use (tool box at each tall and tool room). Pricing was extremely reasonable and they have various discounts for different groups such as active duty, vets, police etc. just ask them about it. Check it out online and see the pictures provided. You can make an appointment on line or by phoning them. If I ever have another job to be done on my care I will go back to them to do it. - 1/11/2018
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
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
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
The guys at the shop and friendly. Always checking to make sure you have all the tools to do the job. - 3/01/2017
Awesome place...Would definitely recommend !!! - 3/07/2020
Awesome place good pricing, tools are in good condition and place is always clean which is nice. - 2/20/2018
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
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
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
These guys make you feel right at home. - 2/20/2019
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
Wowwww!!! Spoke with Steve about coming in early to change my Pathfinder blown Radiator....he was great to talk to ,very prompt n Proffessional, extremely helpful and Wayne was extremely kind n helpful!!!!!This place Rocks...Meticulous shop too, great people..will def be coming back..... HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Thank You Guys Ryan F- - 2/06/2020
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
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
A great place to fix or 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
Went in to do some exhaust work and will definitely be going anytime I have a bigger job. Every tool I needed was there. The staff is awesome and extremely helpful. It's a great shop environment and it makes jobs so much easier knowing you have the right tools and knowledgeable staff that can help you get your job done. - 8/15/2018
Awesome 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
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
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
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
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
Was there this morning to knock out a clutch job. Great friendly staff and very nice clean tidy shop. Would highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone. - 4/16/2017
This place is 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
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
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
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
I can’t say enough great things about this place!
- Excellent facilities
- Knowledgeable and friendly staff
- High quality tools
- Active duty/veteran discount
A great place to go do work on your vehicle if you either don’t have the tools or the space for the job at home. The staff will gladly answer any questions you come across but they will let you work by yourself as well, which is a huge plus.
5 stars all the way! - 7/03/2020
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
Very clean fully equipped garage. The staff is top notch. I'll be back. - 3/08/2020
The best place to go!the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.wouldnt go to any other place - 3/20/2019
Went in for some quick maintenance. Awesome place and awesome staff. Definitely will be returning. - 2/26/2017
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
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
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
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
Awful service. No idea how they are still open. - 2/13/2020
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
I stopped by American DIYG to throw some strut extensions in to level out my 2013 F-150,needed some guidance and they were there for me, this is by far the best shop ive ever worked in,with great guys running the place and an awsome shop i can only say ill be back for more and im bringin friends! - 2/04/2017
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
Great shop, great tools, great staff who lend a hand and give some great advice. Access to any tool you could ever need! (no need to improvize a screw driver as a pickle fork). Not many places you can go and use a lift, but they have four of them here! Do yourself a favor and stop by and see for yourself! - 2/20/2019
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
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
THE BEST PLACE TO WORK ON AUTOMOBILES I WILL ALWAYS BRING MY VEHICLE HERE AWESOME STAFF!! - 1/14/2017
Went there for the first time today, their shop is very clean and well maintained. They have every tool that you need to get the job done with both hand tools and power tools. The price for bay rental is affordable and The people there were extremely helpful and pretty cool at the same time. I definitely recommend the shop. - 4/06/2017
Awesome place great for the Virginia Beach location. I just booked a bay over the phone. When I showed up all the tools that I needed were available the staff was friendly the place was clean. I will be back for further projects on both my vehicles. - 9/01/2019
First time visiting and it was a great experience. Clean shop, and plenty of space to work in. I used a flat bay, which had a tool box with an organized and well labeled tool box. Highly recommend them! - 8/03/2018
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
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
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
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
Awesome shop with everything you need. Very clean and very professional. Best place for all you do it yourself types. - 11/10/2018
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
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
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
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
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
Great idea!!! I wish we had one of these years ago!!! - 7/20/2016
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
This place is great!! We used this service on Sunday and had an amazing exsperience. I will tell everyone I know. They provide me with every tool needed to complete my mission. They are also veteran owned. Thank you and see you soon. - 11/21/2016
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.

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
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
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
Great shop area to get your work done. All the tools and supplies you need, and a little help if required! - 5/22/2018
Brought my car in for front brake pads to get out of the cold for a chance. First time being here and i absolutely loved it! I haven't been in a shop setting in a very long time so doing work on my car hasnt exactly been a fun thing for me. These guys have a great tool kitbready for you with air tools and hydrologic lifts and everything you could need. Absolutely going back again. - 1/18/2018
Great Veteran run business, always there to assist with work. - 1/26/2019
Very clean shop. Great atmosphere and extremely helpful staff. Did a little suspension work today. They had the tools I needed and stopped by the bay regularly to check on progress and offer any assistance. Definitely recommend if you need a place to do some maintenance or repairs. - 9/15/2018
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
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
A fabulous facility. Great staff, awesome layout and extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff. Had everything we needed to rebuild the front axle of our 78 F-250. Very clean and well kept. Tools were very well organized in the tool boxes and the tool corral had everything that wasn't right at our station. Very pleased and will be back for future projects. Oh...and if you are a dog lover, you are sure to be greeted by two large fur babies when you check in. What a wonderful experience. - 2/10/2017
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
Fantastic place! I cannot say enough good things about it! The PEOPLE. The TOOLS. The CLEANLINESS. Everything was just absolutely amazing. Such a beautiful, well behaved pup they have! 10/5 would recommend. Ordered parts and had them delivered within 20 minutes! We will FOREVER be customers! - 7/20/2020
Great experience all the tools I needed - 8/20/2019
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
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
What an awesome place! Great rates, nice staff who is willing to help, and the cleanest garage ever. Highly recommended. - 8/08/2017
Super awesome garage and amazing staff, hands down the best place to work on your vehicle. Highly recommend and will be going back soon! - 6/16/2020
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
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
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
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
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
Wonderful place to work on your car!!!!!! - 2/20/2019
Great people running DIY! Clean shop and have probably all the tools you would need. They also have a knowledgeable staff if you need any help. Money well spent, buy using the shop I saved all the labor and parts markup. The mechanic shop wanted to charge 1260.00 to replace the front struts, and rear shocks. I purchased everything from rock auto for 250.00 and it only took 1.5 hours to replace everything. So with the availability of DIY and tools, I only spent 285.00, that is a large savings. I will use this DIY Garage again.
DIY Garage, thank you
Rich - 3/02/2019
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
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 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
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
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. Those guys rock it in VB - 11/15/2018
Needed to change the Manual Transmission fluid in my '06 Dodge Ram 2500. I call American Do It Yourself Garage and reserved a bay. I showed up a bit early and they got me right in, walked me through the facility, and showed me where all the tools and supplies were. Once I got to work I needed some special tools and they helped me to get them. They also helped me to figure out a tool to get the transmission drain pug out as it it was right over the left bank exhaust crossover tube (Hemi 5.7). I was highly impressed with the friendliness, helpfulness, and ingenuity of the staff. If you don't have a garage of your own, are traveling through and need a place to work on your car, or just want a place to do jobs you don't have tooling for in your own shop, this is an excellent place to go to get the job done! I know I will be returning should I need shop space or need tooling I don't have myself. Thank you to everyone at American Do It Yourself Garage! - 8/25/2019
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
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
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
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 prices, great people, expert advice, occasional assistance, and a very friendly staff. Will be returning. - 10/28/2016
Very nice place to work on your car. - 7/10/2019
Went there to replace the clutch and flywheel in my 2003 Infiniti G35. Got a bay right away and they had all the tools necessary to make the job go smooth. Staff was pleasant to deal with and very knowledgeable. Will definitely return when future maintenance is necessary. - 2/20/2019
Love this place thank you for all you do - 11/30/2018
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
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
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
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
great garage, great atmosphere and help. will be back for all little jobs and big jobs! - 7/20/2019
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

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
this place has all the tools that you'll need plus very helpful and knowledgeable staff - 11/20/2019
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
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
Very friendly and attentive staff. Super cool, laid back atmosphere. Great overall experience. � - 7/19/2018
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
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 place for the people who like to work on their cars and dont have lifts and tools. Nice people very experienced and helpful. People who know how to work on cars and save money on expensive labor this is a place to go. Well maintained equipments and facility. - 6/08/2020

Clean, Great atmosphere, Kind and helpful Staff, Every tool you can think of or need without having to go rent it
The staff are knowledgeable, capable and are a great help if you get stuck.
Gone are the days of jacking your car up 1000 different ways in front of your house on the street with your neighbors eyeballing you in judgment. - 5/25/2019
I'm a novice when I comes to cars, I'm a woman but I can do basic stuff like change tires check air check oil and so on. I needed new wheel and hub bearings and after researching found I could do it myself and took it to these guys. Got into my bay on time they lifted it for me and gave me pointers and tips along the way even had to use some heavy duty machinery to get one loose. Big thanks to all the staff. The place is clean the staff is welcoming and they even have a cute little shop puppy that I played with for a bit. All around good place if you wanna be a do it yourself person, are tired of the dealers or just wanna save yourself some money head over to DIYSG you wont regret it. - 3/07/2020
Great space, large selection of tools, and helpful staff. I can't say enough good things about my experience. I will be back for all my and my wife's vehicle upgrades and routine servicing. - 7/28/2017
This place is AWESOME! Definitely will return and do future work here. Jared and Wayne are super awesome and worked very hard to help me finish the work I was doing. Many thanks! � - 7/20/2017
This is one of the best finds. They have all the tools and knowledgeable people to help. It is all inside out of the weather and have flat bays and lifts. I recommend this place to anyone who likes to work on their car and do it yourself. I wish I would have found this place sooner. - 3/23/2019
great experience. entire facility extremely clean and organized. pleasant all around. - 3/15/2020
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
I had been looking for a reason to get in this garage; this is the best place for those of you who like to work on your own vehicles. Everything is clean, all the tools you need and some you didn't know you did (and won't want to do without again!), clean restrooms, climate controlled environment, AND coffee!! The staff was great and made us feel at home and safe while working on our vehicle. Thank you! :) - 3/07/2020
My experience at this place was outstanding! Great staff , great looking place , and every tool possible for one great price. You just can't beat it ! Will recommend to all car lovers who love working on there vehicle. - 2/15/2018

Great spot. $upport locals when u can - 11/24/2018
One of the most pleasant and productive experiences I've ever had working on my car. These guys are great. If you do ANY work on your car, you'd be a fool not to go here. An absolute deal. Like working on your car with a friend!! I cannot recommend this place enough!!Went back again to DIY to work on my fluids. And I had bought the wrong oil. Guess what? They're even better than I thought. The Garage contacted a local auto parts store and had the oil delivered while I did something else on the car. The DIY garage bailed me out ! I cannot stress how great this place is.American DIY Garage makes working on your car fun again!!! - 2/20/2019
The professional staff and chill clean environment. - 8/20/2019
I had a great experience. All the tools were available and if I had any questions or needed help, the staff did not hesitate. The tools and the environment were in excellent condition. Walking in, I thought I was walking into a show room. Would recommend this shop to anyone. - 11/30/2017
Needed to replace upper & lower ball joints, front and rear shocks, and potentially rear drum brakes. Turned out that I had plenty of life left on the brakes and only an adjustment was necessary($ 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
Pricey but in a pinch......its the only go to DIY garage. Unless you have base access.....The team there is Good to Go - 2/20/2019
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
The entire experience is a 10+. The facility is great with an equally amazing staff. They provide plenty of guidance and advice and made for a truly great visit. - 2/20/2018
love the owners! love the crew! love the facility! love the rates! clean amazing great DIY garage!! - 6/29/2019
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
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
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’m so glad I stopped and checked this place out. Once my parts came in, I scheduled a bay. The bay was so clean, tools readily available and staff very professional and friendly. I will definitely use them again. - 11/11/2017
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
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
I just bought a 2nd hand car and needed to pull the wheels and see what the brakes looked like. Having met the owner and his wife a few weeks earlier at a Mustang show I thought about American DIY Garage and I made and an appointment and drove out and I was quite impressed. The shop is clean, the staff very welcoming, knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly, and a great set of tools, lifts, and everything else needed to work on cars. The shop even offers coffee and I'm talking man size cups, 16 or maybe 20 oz not the Dixie cup size you get at many repair shops. The employee who helped me was never far away when I needed something and tried to anticipate my needs without being intrusive. We talked as I was working and he offered many good tips which made the time go by quickly and made what I needed to do not seem like such a chore. The only thing the shop really needs is Heidi and I shared this with the staff and hopefully they will make this happen. Now guys if you don't know who Heidi is you may as just turn in your Man Cards because you have no business hanging around a car shop. :-) All kidding aside this is a great place with excellent equipment and staff and I will go back. - 5/28/2017

I 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. We did a r&r on a bmw engine and tranny and was very helpful have a shop with plenty of room and tools. They also have specialty tools in case u get in a jam. The air hoses are great on reels and plenty of pressure. Might have to get a membership if we can get more work. - 10/17/2016
Loved this place! Employees were very helpful and attentive to everyone in the shop. They made sure I had the right tools and even helped when needed. I will be returning. - 7/07/2020
Perfect environment to work for the DIYer. Clean, organized and accessible, it hits all the points of a great garage. - 3/11/2018
everyone is so helpful in answering questions you may have and are there to help if you need it . - 10/26/2019
The guys were so helpful in assisting me with any questions i had. - 12/19/2019
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
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
This place is truly an American garage! Everything I need is here. It makes any project easy to finish. Great place! - 2/20/2019
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
