move object and key frames

Is there anyway to change an objects position and have the key frames move with it. For example i animate a box jumping up and down using position key frames. Now i decide to move the box to the left. Is there anyway to move it and all the key frame positions at the same time.

Add a Null Object to the comp, parent the layer you want to move to the null, then move the null.

The other way to skin this cat is to put the timeline cursor on a keyframe, highlight all the keyframes, and use the right-left-up-down arrow keys to move the layer. All the keyframes change as you do this, maintaining the same relative positions.
