Instead of dropping the car off and picking it up later, "Do it Yourself" educates its customers on vehicle upkeep, while charging up to 60 percent less than traditional repair shops.

DIY also offers classes on repair, maintenance and installations. In these classes, students perform car maintenance with tools, lifts and other diagnostic equipment. They do this while a master technician oversees the vehicle's progress and is available for guidance, assistance or full repair.

Customer Matthew Roth weighed in on his experience with "DIY."

"I wanted to take an opportunity to learn how to maintain my vehicle, understand how it works and understand when there might be problems with it, and this seemed like the perfect fit. I can come here, get the technical assistance I need to learn about my vehicle," Roth said.

"DIY" Co-Founder Craig Wallace explains the different levels of assistance you can receive.

"This is a very empowering place to be. If you want me to do the vehicle repairs for you, I can do that. If you want to do it yourself, you can do that. We supply the tools, the bays, the education process to go along with it. Even if you get a little hung up in the overall process, [and] you're not sure what to do next. There is two very talented technicians here on staff that can help you through anything that comes along," Roth said.

The repair bays are $25 to rent and $85 with a mechanic.
