Orlando Lynch moved to Atlanta in 1986, where he became a partner in Uptown Atlanta, an R&B nightclub. After deciding that the nightclub business did not fit his personality as an early riser Orlando decided to relinquish his part in the club. When he purchased his first home he jokingly asked the owner of the moving company if he wanted to sell his company. The owner agreed to contact him if he ever decided to sell. Orlando estimated in his mind that the company could go for up to $20K. Four months later the call came and the owner agreed to sell his company for $4500, $1500 for the truck and $3000 for the good will. Orlando replied “that’s a little high, but I’ll buy it.” The name of the company was Lamar movers.
Utilizing his marketing skills Orlando quickly realized that he needed a name that was easy to remember. He would call his company Georgia Peach Movers, which is a now a sister company of Atlanta Peach Movers.

Mr. Lynch has worked very hard to establish a reputation of quality and reliability among the Atlanta real estate community, mortgage brokers, home builders, national corporations and local residents.
