Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On March 13, 2007, North American International Holding Corporation, a Delaware corporation, SIRVA Holdings Limited, a UK limited company, and Pierre Finance Nederland Renting BV, a company incorporated in The Netherlands (collectively, the “Sellers” and each individually, a “Seller”), and SIRVA Worldwide, Inc., a Delaware corporation, as the Sellers’ guarantor, each a wholly-owned  subsidiary of SIRVA, Inc. (“SIRVA”), entered into an Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Transeuro Amertrans International Holdings BV, a company incorporated in The Netherlands (the “Buyer”), and Zenic International Holdings Limited, a company incorporated in the British Virgin Islands, as Buyer’s guarantor.

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Sellers will sell SIRVA’s Continental European moving services operations in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Russia and, subject to acceptance of the Offer (as defined below), France and Belgium, for a purchase price of approximately $10 million (the “Transaction”).  Specifically, the Sellers will sell to the Buyer all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Allied Arthur Pierre SA, Allied Pickfords BV, Allied Pickfords KeS Kft, Allied Pickfords Polska Sp. Zoo, Allied Pickfords sro, Allied Varekamp BV, SIRVA Deutschland GmbH, Scanvan Holding AB and SIRVA S.A.  The purchase price will be increased by the amount of cash and decreased by the amount of external debt of each of the transferred companies at the closing of the Transaction.  In addition, the purchase price is subject to a working capital adjustment to the extent the transferred companies’ aggregate modified working capital differs from a target working capital by $300,000 or more at closing.

Under the Agreement, the Sellers have agreed to indemnify the Buyer for any fines, claims or liabilities incurred in connection with certain regulatory investigations, subject to a maximum of $5 million.  The limitation does not apply if liability is incurred by the transferred businesses as a result of them being held jointly and severally liable for financial sanctions imposed on companies within the SIRVA group that have not been transferred to the Buyer.  The Sellers have also agreed to comply with a three year non-compete covenant in the above listed countries, subject to an exception for “Pickfords” branded business originating in the United Kingdom.  The Transaction is not subject to any closing conditions and is expected to be completed by the end of March 2007.

In connection with the Agreement, Allied Van Lines Inc., a subsidiary of SIRVA, will enter into authorized representative agreements pursuant to which the Buyer or affiliates of the Buyer will become an Allied network representative in the above listed countries.  Under these representative agreements, the Buyer would have the right to use the Allied trademark and pay an annual license fee to Allied Van Lines Inc. of $1.45 million, which fee would increase by 5% each year for five years.  Also, during the term of the agreements, Allied Van Lines Inc. will be subject to a non-compete covenant in the above listed countries and may not license the Allied trademark to other third parties providing moving and storage services in the listed countries.  The parties will also enter into a transitional services agreement to facilitate a transition of the businesses following completion of the Transaction.

In addition, the Buyer has made an irrevocable offer to purchase SIRVA’s moving services operations in France, operated by SIRVA France S.A.S, and Belgium, operated by

1




Allied Arthur Pierre NV (the “Offer”).  The Offer is conditional on the satisfaction of certain employee consultation requirements in those countries, and may be accepted by the Sellers within ten business days after the satisfaction of the requirements.  If the Sellers are unable to satisfy the consultation requirements and accept the Offer by May 15, 2007, the Offer will lapse.  If the Sellers accept the Offer, the parties would enter into an Amended and Restated Agreement to include the sale of the Belgian business and/or the stock of SIRVA France S.A.S., as applicable.

The description of the Agreement set forth above is qualified in its entirety by reference to the actual terms of the Agreement, which will be filed by SIRVA as an exhibit to its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending March 30, 2007.

Item 8.01.  Other Events.

On March 14, 2007, SIRVA issued a press release with respect to the Transaction.  A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
