Do they need to end in the same 6 spaces, or can they end in a new position (as a group)?

Rearrange some or all of the lockers on the middle of the locker room (as shown)
in order : left to right-top to bottom. How should it be done in energy saving way?

Can we assume gravity as a free move?  If i move locker number 1 out will locker number four safely move with gravity on top of number five?

I believe that it is an overhead view so all of the lockers are sitting on the ground in the center of the room.

Spoiler for comparing answers

 

Question: Are we allowed to arrange them in 3 by 2 or 1 by 6 or 6 by 1 rather than 2 by 3? Also, do they have to be packed in a grid, or can they be staggered such as in the spoiler above?

[spoiler]

The expected middle position is same as shown in the OP. Only the numbers should be rearrange with [ 1 ][ 2 ] on top ,  [ 5] [ 6 ] on bottom (left to right-top to bottom)
We know that pull=push and up/down is less work than left/right..thus some 10 moves can be less effort than other 10 moves.. yet not good enough
