Or if you have the Powerpack for Alfred 2, you can add a hotkey trigger where the argument is set to Selection in OS X and connect it to a Run Script action like this:
Set the language to /usr/bin/osascript and enable escaping double quotes and backslashes. I used an AppleScript instead of a shell script so that the move action would show up as an undo step in Finder. The script exits silently if a path with the same name exists.
Take a look at Keyboard Maestro, it should pretty much be what you're looking for.
