The Locomotion Charm[3] (Locomotor)[1][2] is a charm that enables a witch or wizard to levitate a target a few inches off of the ground and then move said object in any given direction[1]. This spell was described as basic.[4]

Similarly to the Summoning Charm, a specific object can be moved by saying the object aloud after saying the incantation.[3]
