If an object is moving, it can have balanced forces on it.

Firstly, an object with unbalanced forces is either changing direction, changing shape, or changing speed. Something with balanced forces has to be staying still, right? Wrong.

An object with balanced forces can be staying still, or staying the same speed without changing direction or shape. For example, a car has balanced friction/air resistance/drag to acceleration, and balanced gravity to lift (opposing force to gravity; solidness).

Therefore, an object can be moving with balanced forces.
