    the verb move in a figurative sense

    I would appreciate your advice on the following sentences. The sentences are taken from an advertisement for a company that rents vehicles. I was given this text for translation as part of my preparation for the exam. Thanks for your suggestions.

    Quality that moves.
    (An international network and personal contact are always at your disposal.) Because trust moves.
    A selection that moves.
    Service that moves.

    Is your question do those sentences "work" in English? I think so. (The message is wherever you go you can get the service you need.)

    What do you mean in the third sentence by a selection?
