Way to move object over time?

Hi, I have a checkpoint object that im trying to move up a bit when the player activates it.

When said player collides with the trigger, i would want the object to slowly move up a certain height(lets say 5)

Any ideas on how to do this? Ive tried a few things but they resulted in it looking like a regular transform.Translate, which is not what i needed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks again.

Move any object to any place at any speed (units/seconds) or in any time – all done without using Update:

 StartCoroutine (MoveOverSeconds (gameObject, new Vector3 (0.0f, 10f, 0f), 5f));

 public IEnumerator MoveOverSpeed (GameObject objectToMove, Vector3 end, float speed){
	// speed should be 1 unit per second
	while (objectToMove.transform.position != end)
		objectToMove.transform.position = Vector3.MoveTowards(objectToMove.transform.position, end, speed * Time.deltaTime);
		yield return new WaitForEndOfFrame ();

public IEnumerator MoveOverSeconds (GameObject objectToMove, Vector3 end, float seconds)
	float elapsedTime = 0;
	Vector3 startingPos = objectToMove.transform.position;
	while (elapsedTime < seconds)
		objectToMove.transform.position = Vector3.Lerp(startingPos, end, (elapsedTime / seconds));
		elapsedTime += Time.deltaTime;
		yield return new WaitForEndOfFrame();
	objectToMove.transform.position = end;

Take a look at Vector3.Lerp example.

Linear interpolation.

See Vector3.MoveTowards.

If it might sound good, u might use animations also
