How to move files while Taring..

When I run the following command the files get TAR but the files in the folder remain intact.

tar -cvf TARZIP.10 Nov09/

Is there any way to move them into the folder than just copying them.

Thanks and regards,

tar -cvf TARZIP.10 Nov09/ --remove-file1 file2 file3

Note:I have around 15-20k files /folder

Thanks and regards,
