CHEQUERED FLAG INTERNATIONAL, established in 1986, is located in beautiful Marina del Rey, California, just minutes west of Los Angeles. We are a group of dedicated car enthusiasts, who for the last twenty years have been sourcing and supplying quality classic, exotic, and luxury automobiles to customers around the world. We have extensive contacts throughout the California car community, and can usually locate any car that is not already in our million dollar inventory. LOCATION Marina del Rey is a resort area in Los Angeles, approximately three miles north of Los Angeles International airport. There is plenty of reasonably priced accommodations in the vicinity, where one can expect to find a reasonable room for around fifty dollars per night. Please feel free to contact us if you are planning a visit and wish us to make a reservation for you. INVENTORY We maintain an up to date listing of all our cars. Our inventory currently stands at around one hundred cars. Except for exceptional circumstances, every car on our list is physically in our possession. Should you not see the car you are seeking, please feel free to contact us with your needs, we will put you into our computer system and contact you when the car you desire is available. PRICING We try to price the cars as fairly as possible. When buying a car for export from the USA one pays no local or state sales taxes. Discounts are available for multiple car purchases. CONDITION OF CARS California is a dry state, so rust is not usually a problem with cars. However when buying thirty or forty year old vehicles, do expect to see some minor surface corrosion. We sell cars in every condition, from unrestored to perfect condition. However, when buying less expensive cars, please bear in mind the following: There is no annual safety inspection in California, so especially if you are in Europe, where there are stringent safety standards, please expect to have to spend some money on reconditioning (suspension, brakes etc.). Obviously if we are aware of a problem with a car we will advise you in advance. PAYMENT for cars can be made in several ways. Firstly, if you are planning to visit us you may wish to bring travellers checks or cash with you (U.S.dollars!) We can also accept smaller payments on Visa and Mastercard. When buying a car over the telephone, our customers usually wire transfer funds to our bank. FINANCING Please click here for more information on classic and luxury car financing. SHIPPING is available to any destination world wide through a well respected shipping company. In most circumstances the cars are packed into containers and secured in wooden frames to minimise the possibility of damage. The cost of shipping an average sized car to Antwerp, for instance, is US$1000. This price includes all costs from our showroom to the port of Antwerp. There is also optional insurance available at a cost of 1.5% of the value of the car. All shipping and insurance costs are usually paid on arrival of the car. The typical journey time from Los Angeles to most European destinations is five weeks, including time for packing, loading and unloading. CONSIGNMENTS We are always looking for good quality classics or modern performance cars, so if you would like us to represent your vehicle, please contact us and we can discuss your options. If you are looking to sell an AC, Austin Healey, Alfa Romeo, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Jaguar, Jensen, Lotus, Mercedes Benz, Porsche, Triumph or any other classic sports car, let us know! Hopefully this will answer most of your initial questions. However, please feel free to contact us if you need more information or if we can assist you in any way.
