Default Pull in/Pull over/Pull up

Hello

I would like to know if there is a slight difference in meaning between these phrasal verbs or if they just simply mean 'to stop a car'. I hope you can understand my question.


I want to congratulate you on the forum. It has really helped me with my English.

Thanks!

Hi there and welcome!

Pull in - usually used to indicate that the driver is to park the car in a specific area.

ex. pull in to the parking spot; pull into the garage, etc.

pull over - usually used to indicate that the driver is to stop the car on the side of, perhaps, a road.

ex. pull over next to the tree; pull over because the police are behind us

pull up - usually used to indicate that the driver is to drive the vehicle right next to something and stop it.

ex. pull up to the drive-thru; pull up to the house

I hope this helps (I do believe you are talking about vehicles, right?)
