If this plugin is working properly you should be able to peruse through some of our reviews. Yes, we know, there are a couple “not-five-star” reviews in there but we think it’d be disingenuous to filter them out and claim we’re straight five star (even if it IS true, lol).
Though few and far between, from what we’ve been able to determine, they’re usually trolls who have never been to the shop. Those of you who have been to the shop know we get your information for our point of sale system as well as for waivers, and more often than not, the bad reviewers have not been in. (And for those of you who haven’t been to the shop, well now you know that too, lol)
It is what it is, right? This being the internet and all, anybody can say anything they want and not be held accountable. We like to think the “body of work” of the vast number – and ratings – of our reviews speak for themselves. 🙂

I've shamelessly copied this review from Shawn a couple of posts below because it was my exact experience also. With Wayne and Dalton's incredible assistance and guidance, we changed two lower ball joints and a tie rod in an hour!
"This was my first time using any kind of DIY garage and the experience far exceeded my expectations. Everything from check-in to leaving the garage was top notch service. Not only do you have tools and equipment to get the job done you have the experience of the talented staff. Seriously, these guys saved me a lot of time and headache with their suggestions and help. I will be back for my next project."
This was our second visit to the garage and both times have been an amazing experience! The garage is fully equipped with the tools needed and the staff are all helpful and friendly!

Can't recommend this place enough! What a great experience! The garage is well equipped with everything you could possibly need, and the staff is there when you need help. I will be back! This was one of the best experiences I have had with customer service and a great facility. The setup for the garage is perfect with very clean work spaces and all the tools you will need. The staff here is exceptional, I highly recommend anyone who has projects to complete for their vehicle do it at American Do It Yourself Garage!! Visited for the first time today. Was an extremely pleasant experience. Everything was great, easy check in, thorough walk thru of the shop and items available, courteous service getting the vehicle into the bay and safely in the air. Big plus to have tools there to use and the expertise of the staff if/when you have a question or run into an issue. We were there for almost 4 hours and this was by far the easiest way to work on a car. Really enjoyed the experience, it's affordable and the garage it top notch. I will be back. Keep up the great work guys!
21:13 11 Dec 21
Extremely helpful staff, clean shop, organized tools. Will be back when we get the right parts this time! Thanks for all your help!

I had the fortunate experience of having to utilize the services at American DIY Garage. My experience could not have been better. I had some major work that I had to do to my vehicle and nowhere to do it. I couldn't afford to pay a shop, so I decided to check out the DIY Garage. At 2 points during my project I ran into some very difficult problems and while I was having a panic attack inside my brain, the staff at the shop instantly realized that I was in a bad spot. Not a single person there refused to give me a hand. All these guys, Dalton, Jason, Wayne and Mark and another fella that was there on Saturday 12/4 did everything they could, from offering great advice to actually stepping in and doing what they could to help me. I was really struggling at a certain point and these guys gave me encouragement and positive feedback which helped me complete this job. I cannot say enough about how I feel about the staff at American DIY Garage. If you have a project and need the place, tools and awesome staff to assist you, please do not estate to go check this place out. I have a lot of work still to do on my car and when I need a bay with or without a lift. I will go here. You guys have my undying gratitude for your help. You're all brothers to me as far as I'm concerned.Thank you!

I brought in my 2010 Lexus IS 250C to replace the viewscreen on the Audio/Navigation unit that takes up the middle of my dashboard. youTube instructions showed a rather difficult job to accomplish. Thank goodness for Jason who helped me every step of the way to take out the unit, replace the touchscreen, and put the unit back. The job would have been VERY difficult without his help. Thanks again.The DIY Garage has tools you are welcome to use for everything you can imagine, clean, well-lighted workbenches and workspaces, and a bunch of guys who are ready to help with about any job. Worked on near me were brakes on a Chevy Spark, a new performance exhaust system on a new Toyota GR Supra (as silly as that sounds you ought to hear it now!), switching an automatic transmission for a manual on an older Lexus sedan 🙂 and a bunch of other jobs that were performed while I had my adventure in electrical wiring.This was a marvelous way to spend a Saturday morning that was too cold to work outside. Being able to perform a difficult job in comfortable working conditions with the guys there made the whole experience a great time. Can hardly wait for something else to break! If there was an option for 6 stars I would give it. All the personnel are helpful and knowledgeable. They have all the tools you’ll need and the atmosphere is fantastic. That place is fully equipped with everything you need to get the job done right
18:19 19 Nov 21
Awesome and educational experience. I am looking forward to visiting again. Thanks!

Great place, helpful staff, clean and safe with tools available for use.
17:34 10 Nov 21
I'm currently working away from home and consequently away from all of my tools and garage. This place is like your own personal dealership service center. They have most anything you can possibly need to work on your vehicle. The lift made header install SO mush easier. No bug bites or rain stopping your progress. Great place to work on your vehicle of choice!
03:18 21 Oct 21
Zero ComplaintsHave everything you'll need.
12:23 09 Oct 21
This DIY garage exceeded my expectations! They have 10 bays with lifts, every tool needed, including hydraulic presses, impact wrenches, cleaning station, and many others. The garage is well organized and clean and easy to use with plenty of space between bays to do your work. I am not a cert mechanic but know the basics...the staff are friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and will lend a hand if needed. I would recommend to anyone! Great service and group of guys!
01:56 02 Oct 21
Great location, good selection of tools, helpful staff. Couldn't be happier with the experience of working on my car there. Amazing service and amazing people
16:36 25 Sep 21
5 stars and 2 huge thumbs up. You guys are awesome! Thank you sooo much. I highly recommend this place over any service shop. These guys were top notch. The bays were very clean. All the tools I needed to replace rotors and pads were on hand. When I was unsure about something, they were there to give me advice. When I needed an extra set of hands, there were very helpful. I highly recommend this business

This place is great! They heve everything you need to repair your vehicle. Wayne was awesome and he helped me out tremendously! I will definitely return and tell others about it. You just can’t beat having all the tools and everything you need, well organized and at arms length. Not to mention the attentive care shop keepers, Wayne and Dalton, I believe are their names, offer. Couldn’t have enjoyed the experience more. Fricken awesome concept and establishment!
To give you an idea, I brought the wrong part (bearing and hub assembly) to make the repairs, Wayne pointed it out and was able to order and get me what I needed delivered before I was even ready to replace it. Too cool!
Go get your hands dirty, nothing more empowering that doing the work mostly by your self 8)
22:46 27 Aug 21
5 star operation, visited them today for the first time. The facility is huge with many lifts with good spacing to work without being crowded. they have EVERYTHING! all types of tools, jacks, compressed air, electric impacts, you name it! The staff was outstanding and so helpful, super nice people! The shop is clean and a mechanics' paradise basically. They have a great "Chill Room" to take a break and have a cold drink. Really loved using their facility and will be back!!
22:30 10 Aug 21
Go to place for working on mine and others Jeeps. Staff is very hands on and helpful. I have done full suspension swaps, basic maintenance, brake flushes, etc. They have all the tools and equipment needed.
18:39 05 Aug 21
Worth every cent. Incredible customer service. All the professional tools were organized and right there for me to use making the job much easier. The staff helped me with the hardest task. It was slow when I was there so I don't think that they would be able to always do that but it sure was nice to have their help. Turned a 6 hour job into a 3.5 hour job. I'll definitely be using this place for my next project.

This place is great not only for those who need a place to work on their car and the tools to do so but also for those who may not know exactly what or how to do something. As long as you attempt to work on your car there are people there who will help if you need and walk you through it all even how to use each tool or what the best tool would be to use. Super friendly and helpful! My husband and I love this place!

Since I saved a ton a money R&R'ing my A/C condenser at ADIYG I can buy long tube headers now, and install them there too!
22:21 25 Jul 21
This place is awesome great staff and helped me out tremendously when I needed my dust shield fixed in a hurry I would recommend this place to everyone
16:17 24 Jul 21
The shop is super clean, all of the equipment is professional quality. Despite being a DIY shop, the staff always seem willing to lend a set of hands if you need help. Just incredibly helpful and friendly. Very good tool set up and Dalton was a big help.
13:36 16 Jul 21
We came in to do a heater core change on our truck. While we knew from the get-go that it was going to be a big job, there's a difference between knowing and appreciating the scope of a job you've never attempted. Fortunately, the guys here have a knack at keeping things moving while never being overbearing. They're present but non-intrusive, checking in and offering professional advice/assistance when they find us DIYers getting in over our heads. In our case, it made the difference between success and failure, and in the end saved us the many hundreds of dollars it would have cost to have had the job done at a repair shop.The garage itself is spotless and stocked with all the essential tools/supplies you might need. They also have a break room with a vintage refrigerator and oodles of americana. All and all, it was totally worth the 2 hour drive. Thanks guys! Great place! Great staff!
21:56 16 Jun 21
Throttle cable on the Harley was giving me issues on the way to the gym. Stopped in to borrow a couple tools. Shop was clean, tool boxes well stocked and organized. The staff took good care of me. If you have a large undertaking of a job it’s a great place to handle it.
23:57 06 Jun 21
Cleanest working garage you'll ever step foot in!! Super knowledgeable staff. Did my breaks and oil change, all the tools you need are right there!! Dalton helped me with muscle and answered any questions I had.I'll definitely make this place my go to for any future vehicle maintenance.
14:36 05 Jun 21
Awesome guys, love this place
18:56 28 May 21
Very very good experience.... Replaced my front drive shaft on my jeep Wrangler. Very clean work space. The staff was very very helpful as I had a hand injury and was a great help walking my wife thru the steps. Was very proud big her by the way! All the tools very organized. Enjoyed the experience. Will without a doubt return in the future!
04:15 24 May 21
It's clean, they have everything but an alignment rack. They're extremely helpful and friendly. If I owned a shop it would look like DIYAG. Very homie and comfortable working in there. i highly HIGHLY recommend it.
14:17 16 May 21
Guys running the place are super helpful, and allow for a great experience.
21:02 06 May 21
Needed a place to change my oil pan gasket. ADIYG had everything i needed and more. Space, lift, tools, solvents, parts cleaner, etc. First time visiting yesterday. Nice and organized! Staff was very helpful during our motor swap. Highly recommend! I went to American DIYG for the first time yesterday and I can say that it was way better of an experience than I could have imagined. All of the workers were super knowledgeable and helpful. I learned a few things while I was there. Also, I didn't need a single tool. They had everything including a specialty tool to make the job easier. I had a midday and I did have to wait about 25 minutes past my appointment time but that's because they don't kick people off before your work is done. I would have appreciated that if I had been on the other side of that coin. I'll definitely be going back.

Super chill place. Awesome employee's willing to help you out with anything you need. They have any tool you would need to get the job done. Did my front bumper with a help of a friend in 3.5 hrs
16:24 23 Apr 21
very cool shop and the people their are so helpful Excellent place to get that work on your vehicle done. The staff is friendly. They have the necessary tools. The staff will come by and offer advice if you run into a problem. 10 stars out of 5!
21:51 19 Apr 21
Always helpful... Great place to work on your car... Worth every penny from the tools to the assistance They have everything you need to get the job done. Clean garage. Friendly and helpful staff. Affordable prices. 5 stars. Awesome place! Looks and feels like I was in a TV episode! Wayne and Dolton were fantastic. I had my hmmwv camper and they were super helpful with the FNG (me). My first oil change ever! Wayne being an Army vet and having worked on the hmmwvs during his time had super helpful tips. Better than having the TM or watching YouTube video. Place and people were awesome. My goto spot from now on, when I am in town or close by. Very helpful staff, clean environment, prices right for what you get. Would recommend to friends and family. Will definitely use again. Best place to go to get it done...period. I’ve never really worked on my car myself, I ended up getting a lift for my vehicle and the staff helped guide me in the right direction through the whole process and even helped me get some stuff done when I really needed it. These guys are awesome and I would highly recommend diyg to anyone looking to get some stuff done on their vehicle. Super cool place! The garage is clean and loaded with tools. If you can’t find what you need in the tool box just ask the staff. Mark and Wayne were pleasant and always offering a helping hand. Great place to do work on your vehicle. Friendly staff. Have just about everything you need to get the job done.
16:30 14 Mar 21
Fantastic shop and amazing service! For those of you who are "borderline" DIY and are maybe a little nervous because you might now be as knowledgeable around the garage, this place is perfect. The staff was incredibly helpful and made me feel like I actually knew what I was doin'! I'll be back for sure!
23:48 04 Mar 21
16:22 01 Mar 21
Highly recommend coming here. Great staff and very helpful. Save time and money by not going to a regular shop and not upsetting the neighbors. But only for the mechanical savvy.
11:41 28 Feb 21
I had to remove the subframe and the guy came along while I had everything apart and without asking reorganized all the bolts on the table. That's not my responsibility. When I put everything back together I used the wrong bolt in the wrong hole and stripped a chassis unibody bolt hole that holds my passenger front control arm steering rack, subframe bracket and subframe to the frame. Blooper reel 😟. The transmission promptly ate itself due to angular shear and I'm out about $5000 Volkswagen dollars cuz of their stupidity.
00:48 14 Feb 21
Every tool to do the job and if YouTube University didn't teach you enough before you got there, they know how to help.
17:57 10 Feb 21
Awesome experience and clean facility. I used their lift to install coilovers in my civic. The employees were very friendly and checked on us often to see if we needed help. Definitely coming back again.
04:10 04 Feb 21
I had a great first experience! My brother and I replaced brakes on my 4Runner, and the staff was helpful and friendly.
03:52 02 Feb 21
The guys there were amazing. Super nice and very helpful. The garage has a nice layout and any tool you need. Great shop, great tools, five star staff and soft toilet paper Gave our son-in-law our 1999 Ford F-150, motor was done - he wanted it anyway. Booked a bay here and he was able to replace the engine. Highly recommend this place! The staff are great!
00:43 18 Jan 21
Very clean. All the tools you need. Helpful staff.
00:46 16 Jan 21

Honestly I would give this shop 5 stars except that I can't in all honesty ever give anyone a perfect score. The guys were super helpful and friendly, and way more polite than I had expected walking in. 11/10 would do business again.Any tools I needed that they didn't have in my bays tool chest they had in the tool room. Got my CV axle replaced in 1 hour and 14 minutes. Love this shop.Edit: They took two seconds to write a reply to my review, most businesses I have visited haven't done that. 5th star earned, sir. It was a great experience. My first time there and they were very helpful and helped out when they could and they were very experienced as I expected so they could answer all the questions. Definitely going back! This place is truly the best option. I live in NY/NJ and originally went to a couple of these supposedly DIY spots that are really just trying to sell you into using their mechanics. They offer no tools, no help, give you a list of rules like "no fluid disposal" and basically set you up to fail. So as a condo and co-op resident just gave up and have been doing whatever I can on the street or paying $100+ an hour labor. Finally the control arms, tie rods, drive belt, etc needed replacing on one of my cars, a Ford Focus beater. Mechanics were quoting over 1K in labor alone. So now was time to either pay the value of the car in labor, do it on the street in 30 degrees or find a legit DIY garage. Did a lot of research and American DIY Garage seemed straightforward. OK time to roll the dice and make a trip out of it to VA since no options in my region, area, whatever. Well, I lucked out because these guys are the real deal. This Focus beater doesn't get much maintenance so plenty of rusted bolts and even the lug nuts. Initially was worried I wouldn't be able to even start the job due to the frozen lugs, but Dalton was there to advise and even lend a hand with the removal. Also, when I needed to fit wrenches into an engine bay designed for a 10 year old's hands they were more than happy to assist with the right knowledge and tools. The shop setup is exactly as pictured, very modern, clean and just an overall great chill environment to work in. Tools are all there and they have those special tools available if needed. Everything from air tools to tie rod removers to yes, rusted lug nut removers. This is THE spot so don't sweat it just grab your parts, hop In the car and go here. So with all that said, like Terminator, I'll be back!
18:31 08 Jan 21
This was the most impressive garage I've ever seen! It far exceeded my expectations! The staff members Dalton and Jessie were so helpful! They are such amazing people! I've already recommended this to many people and will definitely be back! So glad I came here!

Everything is laid out and easy to find. If you don't see something just ask. Thanks for existing! You guys Rock!!! What an awesome place !!!
Would I go back ? Every time !
You need to work on your vehicle this is the place to go ... seriously!
Great bunch of guys and helpful..
This place has just about anything you need to fix it yourself ! Incredible!
17:27 19 Dec 20
I will never do another repair in my driveway. Having access to all the tools you need and using the lift made this job take half the time it would've taken me at home and none of the frustration. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Thank you Jesse for the tips.
01:36 19 Dec 20
Best place to do the job yourself. The staff is friendly and experienced! Great time everytime im there very helpful and good people 10/10 would recommend Incredible shop. amazing tools, all calibrated. Beautiful work space. 100% worth the price of admission. Couldn't be any happier

I went there because I has a check engine light. With my OBDII scanner, I knew that codes P0171 and P0174 (system too lean, banks 1 & 2) were the problem. I troubleshot myself, the air filter and MAS were clean, the fuel filter was new, I found no vacuum leaks, the PCV checked out good, and knew that 2 O2 sensors would have to have failed simultaneously, to pop both codes. I though my problem must be the fuel pump. None of the auto parts stores, nor the Auto Hobby Shops on the bases had a scanner that reads fuel pressure, and the repair shops charge over $100 to diagnose. I bought a fuel pump, and was prepared to drop my gas tank to replace the one in my van. American DIY Garage had a sophisticated enough scanner to verify that my fuel pressure (and therefore, pump) were good. The MAS was reading at .01 lbs, which the DIY rep said was too low. The diagnostic cost me less than $6. I returned the $155 fuel pump, and bought a $55 MAS. After installation, it still read .01 lbs, but I cleared the codes, and they've stayed cleared. This was for my work van, which is very important to my livelihood. Giving American DIY Garage a try turned out to be a great investment of my time and money.

Very helpful and knowledge staff, very clean shop with possibly any tool you need. The entire staff there was so helpful , Wade the manger is awesome ...They made fixing my car so quick and easy with there supplies ...Also the pricing is great, I would definitely be there again..if there were more places and great staff like this in virgina it would be so helpful I love it there..I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone.... Went there today to look for an annoying rattle under my F150. The two guys there put my truck up on the lift.....we found a loose exhaust heat shield........they secured it with a hose clamp and I was on my way! Great!.....all for $17. I previously had asked an oil change tech if they could look for the rattle while they were down there....and of course they wouldn’t.
DIY garage is the way to go and the guys working there will help you!

ADIYG is the place to go work on your car. You won't be alone working on your car, if you run in to trouble you will have assistance from staff to get your sorted out. I had to replace upper ball joints and they where a real pain to get swapped. Both Wayne and Dalton helped me out a lot and I owe it to them for helping me get my car finished up. Thank you guys again for allowing me to run over closing time by 30 minutes and for all the help you offered. Will be back for sure!
19:25 15 Aug 20
I was very stressed about how much it would cost to get my alternator fixed but then I went here and with some help from the amazing staff there, I was able to put a new alternator-(they ordered and had it delivered within 30 mins) in myself with the guidance of the amazing staff. They had all the tools and knowledge needed to help me fix something I never thought I could do!

First time coming here and it certainly won't be our last! What an amazing place. Better than the others! Clean, friendly, organized, and at a fraction of what you'd pay a shop! 10/5 highly recommend. Even on the hottest day of the year, it was very pleasant working here. Had to order some parts unexpectedly, but they arrived within 20 minutes! Can't beat this place. You've earned customers for life!P.S. They have great individual and club membership options for discounted rates and other rewards for an annual price! 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!

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. 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!

Went in to change front and rear brake pads and rotors. Staff was extremely helpful. Wayne was able to provide expert knowledge and tips anytime I was unsure how to proceed. All the tools that I needed were readily accessible in a labeled toolbox. Super awesome garage and amazing staff, hands down the best place to work on your vehicle. Highly recommend and will be going back soon! Today was the first time we visited this garage. The facility is amazingly clean, they had every tool we needed on hand, but the best part was the staff.... Jason, Sarah, and David were so patient and helpful. They made sure they were readily available to answer any questions we had. I’m so happy with this place and highly recommend it. I can’t wait to tell my friends and coworkers!!!

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. Went in today for some work on my Jeep. They had all the tools I needed and a lift too. It’s so much easier working at eye level instead up and down on 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. forgot to give them a review but overall experience was pretty great, all hands on deck if needed for help. Every staff member was helpful when my husband was stuck. They have everything we needed. My husband broke a piece screw and one of the crew had called to order a replacement and it came within 30 minutes. Its crazy fast. I would definitely recommend this place. great experience. entire facility extremely clean and organized. pleasant all around. Very clean fully equipped garage. The staff is top notch. I'll be back. 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. The best experience i could ask for,They had parts delivered while i removed my parts. It took like 20 minutes.for parts to get there. Every tool i needed, to include air powered tools.

Awesome place...Would definitely recommend !!! 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. 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.

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

Great shop very clean and great customer service! Definitely will come again!Dwight R. This is a great idea. Back in the seventies there was a place in Columbus, Ohio where you could use a bay with a lift. Came in very handy a couple of times.

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.
20:05 04 Feb 20
Went there to work on my truck. The staff was really helpful. Their knowledge base help figure out what was wrong with my truck and ehat i need to do to get it inspection ready. I highly recommend this shop.

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. 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 !!!! 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.

Place is awesome and staff helped us out when we would get stuck on something we couldn’t get done ourselves!

They have everything you need for the DIYer. Saves time vs being in your own driveway/garage. They also have impact tools which speed things up.

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. 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. The guys were so helpful in assisting me with any questions i had. 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.
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! 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. Very helpful and friendly staff. Facility has all the basic tools you need. Definitely will return next time I need to do maintenance. 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.... everyone is so helpful in answering questions you may have and are there to help if you need it . 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 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
Excellent place to work on your vehicle! People there are very helpful and nice! Thank you once again for your support! We recommend!!!!! 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. 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. Awesome experience! Great service and saves lots of money! I will definitely be back! Every person that does their own auto repairs should do it here. 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!! 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. great garage, great atmosphere and help. will be back for all little jobs and big jobs! Very nice place to work on your car. 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. It's no wonder American DIYG has high ratings! Awesome place to wrench on your car. Very comfortable and pretty much any tool you can think of is at your disposal.Staff was very friendly and will check up on you throughout your stay. Work smart and comfortably away from the elements with American DIYG. Highly recommend using their services! 5 stars! love the owners! love the crew! love the facility! love the rates! clean amazing great DIY garage!! Organized and efficient garage setup! Friendly, knowledgeable staff in a clean well organized atmosphere. All the tools required for the task was readily available. Extremely well priced and managed. 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!
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! 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. 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.
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. Very nice place and nice people. Even helped out while taking off my exhaust. it was the first time that I had been to the garage, and even though it was for just an oil change it was great to have someone there to talk to and find out what other issues will come with my truck. will deffiantly be bringing my truck back for any other repairs that need to be done, and recommend you all to anyone that has to do any work on their vehicle 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. they got me in super last second. bays were clean and organized they had everything I needed. service was great. highly recommend to anyone. Good news! I replaced a wheel hub and bearing assembly on my 2010 Malibu. My car no longer sounds like a helicopter.
Bad news: steering knuckle is extremely corroded needs to be replaced.
Decent news: plenty of salvage parts from accidents, and the knuckles are usually in really good shape only ~$100 at most.
Awesome help was provided by David @ the London Bridge location! Awesome place, awesome business model, great tools, and Amazing assistance by very knowledgeable technicians!
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. 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!!! 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! Awesome experience here changing my brakes, oil, and broken taillight. I was able to do it all very quickly and saved hundreds by not taking it to a repair shop instead. very helpful staff who did not belittle me for being an amateur and helped me the whole way and I learned alot. I will definitely be back to do shocks and springs next. highly recommended. 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
Great staff, very knowledgeable , super clean place and should have just about any tool you need to get the job done … thanks again Staff is super friendly and a great place to fix a vehicle inside with all the tools and help you can get. Great shop, great price, and friendly staff. It's superior to Oceana Hobby Shop Worked on my truck tonight. Dave and Doug were very helpful proving guidance and advise. Happy to have my vehicle riding well. Good experience. 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 Great Veteran run business, always there to assist with work. 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! 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. 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! 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 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! 5 stars
Excellant experience & fantastic staff. owner is very personable, the shop is brand new and clean. i was very impressed with the layout & all the amenities. the owner & staff went above and beyond. highly recommend. great price for what is offered & available to use.
Love this place thank you for all you do 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. The staff is incredibly helpful, and is always willing to lend a hand with anything you’re working on. Had a great experience working on my car for the first time here.
