Moving VMs from one datastore to another

Is there a recommended (or built-in) way to move powered off VMs from one datastore to another? Or is this a straightforward cut and paste job that can be done from any client PC connected to the underlying storage provider(s)?

If both, Source and Destination datastore are connected to same vCenter server, do Storage vMotion. Right click VM --> Migrate --> Change Datastore and Select Destination datastore.
