Utility to right-click and move files into folders?

On the Windows side, I like to right-click and "Send To" except I'd usually prefer it *moves* selected files instead of copies.

Is there a Mac utility where I can right-click and move to configurable folders? It looks like the only "folder" by default is the Trash ("Move to Trash").

I know there's the left-hand collapsible pane with Places, but I don't want to clutter it up with too many folders that I could neatly tuck into a contextual menu.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, I know this but I'm looking for a way to move into specific, preset folders. Any ideas?

Put those specific folders into the Dock, and/or the Finder Sidebar. Then drag them there.

An automator action for each preset folder, saved as a plug-in for Finder, should solve this
