From bin man to successful detailer: meet Mr Buff
Now here is a story that will put a smile on your face. Or at least, we think so. Meet Mr Buff from Plymouth. Mr Buff, who is actually called Paul Lynch, clearly had his days of hardship. He once was a bin man, making long days from which he always returned with sour muscles and a heavy heart. But nowadays he comes home happy. And he looks after and cleans up things that are a lot more valuable.
After 11 years of standing on the back of a garbage truck, Paul Lynch now runs Mr Buff Detailing in Plymouth, where he spends his days polishing and detailing high-end luxury cars.
It all started a bit as a hobby. A hobby which soon absorbed all of Lynch’ free time. “But it turned into a very good business and it has kept growing and growing to where I am today”, he tells local newspaper The Plymouth Herald. Lynch recently returned from Miami, where he worked on a £4m superyacht.
“I work on high-end luxury cars Ferrari, G-Wagon’s, Range Rover SVR’s, Audi RS6, and I get paid to make them shiny and keep them clean”, he proudly tells the newspaper.
Business is going well for Mr Buff. After three years he soon will move to a bigger location, in order to keep up with rising demand.
