fill in your server and file details and make a batch file. schedule a task to run this batch.
ftp <server>
cd <dir>
mget <files>
delete <files>

you can use the batch file as antonybrahin stated or use synchronization softwares and set the options to delete files from source after synchronization.

Sync Back SE or Super Flexible File Synchronizer could help in this issue.
