For the last two days I have been helping a widowed friend move some furniture. My role was confined to hiring and driving a van, and a little light lifting.
The van was a jumbo Transit with a long wheelbase and a high roof. It was very commodious and drove just like a car - in fact it managed to achieve 70 mph with apparently very little effort, although the fuel consumption went up after that. A very different beast from the old van I last hired. It just goes to show the progress vehicles have made.
