van or lorry/bike or motorbike
What's the difference in meaning between:
van and lorry?
bike and motorbike?
Re: van or lorry/bike or motorbike
In the UK, a van is smaller than a lorry. A van is usually the type of vehicle that a self-employed plumber or electrician might use. It has seats in the front, but the back is a large space for storing tools and other equipment. A lorry is the larger type of vehicle, frequently with more than 4 wheels, used to transport large goods over longer distances.
