I would also like to point out, that depending on the context, the verb "ocupar" can be used when we would say in English 'to use'; such as a tool in a task or job, etc.

¿Lo ocupaba usted?

Were you using it?

It is possible that this may only be a Latin American usage, but I'm not sure about that. It does show in RAE that 'ocupar' can mean "Emplearse en un trabajo, ejercicio o tarea", but it doesn't indicate regional usage.

I/you used to occupy that place. - Yo/él/ella/usted ocupaba ese lugar.
