Who is Eccentric Trading Company
Founded in MCMLXXXVI Eccentric Trading has a celebrated reputation for hiring fine furniture and furnishings; specialising in bygone styles to satisfy the needs of the film industry.
Located in North London's heart of the UK’s film industry, our stock has been used to dress classical, antique, vintage and contemporary films, television show, commercials, theatre productions, weddings, parties and exhibitions where a theme and authenticity are required.
We are an international company and have exported our props to every continent (apart from that is Antarctica but we remain hopeful, one day....).
A visit to us will provide an antidote for the usual. Weary warehouse wonderers will be treated to both a guarantee of new acquisitions on each visit and provided with an abundance of caffeinated refreshments and almost always Jaffa Cakes

Lost or Damaged
Lost or damaged items are calculated upon return of items.
Damages will be assessed and consider whether it is a write off, cost to repairing it, and the amount it will devalue the item once it has been repaired. Additional consideration is taken for instance for things like if a set of 6 Victorian teacups and saucers with a sugar bowl, milk jug and tea pot come back with the tea pot lid missing, charge would be entire value of the whole set as this wold devalue the whole set
