L.S. Eaves Limited have been dealing with Ford since the outset when Leonard Eaves started the business in Stoke By Nayland. Phillip Eaves carried on building the success of L.S. Eaves for many years and during  the year 2000 the family run business started specialising in nearly new Fords. Today the company is run with the same enthusiasm by Philip’s son, Nigel Leonard Eaves, becoming the third generation to oversee the running and success of the business.
