Can I bring my own tools?

Can I bring my own parts to?
Yep! DIY Auto Repair Center does not sell auto parts so feel free to bring whatever parts you need. We also share a parking lot with XL Auto Parts to make getting most the parts you need easy and convenient. If you are ordering parts online feel free to have them shipped directly to the shop. Just let us know what and when your parts will be arriving and we will have them waiting for you when you arrive.
How much does it cost to rent a bay?
That depends on the type of repair you need to make. We have bays without lifts and bays with 10,000 lb Challenger 2 Post Lifts. Please click here to see our pricing.
What's required to rent a bay?
To rent one of our bays you must be at least 18 years old, have a valid drivers license, and be able to provide current proof of insurance on the vehicle you are bringing in. When you arrive you must review and sign our waiver and we will get you all set up to begin working.
Can I bring my children with me?
No one under the age of 18 is allowed in the shop area. Children under 18 can wait in the break room but must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Under no circumstances can a minor be left alone anywhere on the property.
Do I need to make a reservation?
While it is not necessary, it is definitely recommended to insure we have space and tools you may need to complete your repair or service. You can schedule a reservation here.
Is there a minimum requirement on the amount of time you rent?
Yes. There is a 2 hour minimum on the bay rentals. If your requirement or work takes less than 2 hours you will still be billed the minimum of 2 hours for bay time.
Can I leave my car overnight?
We do offer overnight storage within the shop for $10 per night. At this time, storing a vehicle outside of the shop is not permitted. In the event that you cannot finish a repair before we close and need to store the vehicle overnight, we would be happy to accommodate you. The rental rate of the space you are occupying will begin at the time we open on the following business day.
What if I cannot complete my repair in the amount of time I rented?
If taking extra time will not interfere with another reservation you can simply rent additional time. If it will affect another reservation that was made for the space, one of our team members will work with you to make arrangements with you so that you can complete the repair, store the vehicle, or have it transported (at your expense).
What if I finish my repair/maintenance before my time is up?
If you reserved 6 or more hours for your repair, you will be responsible for the full amount of time you reserved as we likely turned someone else away who wanted to reserve the bay. In the even that the reservation was for less than 6 hours, we will round up the time you used to the nearest half hour.
Will you take my used fluids?
Yes. We have receptacles to accept old fluids for customer who rented space from the shop. We will also accept old batteries and filters. This is provided at no additional charge.
Do you have a Wheel Balancer/ Tire Changer?
At this time we do not have a Wheel Balancer, Tire Changer, or Alignment Rack.
Can my club rent out the whole shop for a meet?
Absolutely! Please contact us with the day/times you are interested in and we would be happy to make arrangements for your club to come use our facilities.
