Pascal Kellermayr, Fahrradfensterputzer, Vienna, Austria (B9)

Pascal has been working as a car free window cleaner for 15 years. At the beginning of his small business in 2002 he considered buying a car but soon had to understand that even this would overstretch his financial capacities. So he built a very large bicycle trailer for transporting all his equipment including large telescopic ladders, which he soon modified and improved as soon as enough money came in. Later on he built a new trailer about every four years, transacting the conclusions and ideas of the respective past four years. Pascals business provides a long term proof that working with cargobikes instead of cars works perfectly well for urban craftspeople.
