PLUMBER-HEATING ENGINEER AND BICYCLE TRANSPORT, IT'S COMPATIBLE !
"Yes, you can transport a 200-litre water heater by bike", says Antoine Laperche. After four years of criss-crossing the streets of Nantes on a cargo bike with the Nantes-based company Ze Plombier, he launched his own business in Grenoble in autumn 2021: "Robi Plomberie".
"As the city is flatter than Nantes, I took a bike without electric assistance", he explains, "I put all my tools in the box in front of the bike, and I add a trailer when I have to transport a bathtub or a radiator". He can also ask his supplier to deliver the equipment to the site.

"Many plumbers refuse to work by bike because of the rain and the cold, but in my opinion, there are many advantages", explains Antoine Laperche: "No traffic jams, no parking problems, no petrol costs, and in between jobs I can relax on my bike!".
