1. The standard very general word for making something move or displacing something is dòng 動, and there is no general suggestion that the thing moved comes to rest anywhere.

2. Yí 移 refers to dislocating anything to a new location where it comes to remain for some shorter or longer time.

3. Xǐ 徙 refers in a stylistically unmarked way to removing something permanently to another position. When legalists train their citizens, they ask them to xǐ 徙 "remove" an object from one arbitrary place to another.

4. Qiān 遷 refers in a stylistically more elevated way to removing something permanently to another position, often as an official or public political measure. The word is also used figuratively for moving someone to a higher position in the hierarchy. See PROMOTE.
