Pilings are pressed into place by force until they cannot be pushed in any further. Usually, because there is a layer of rock or smoother hard spot that gets in the way. They are forced to this limit to ensure that you have a very sturdy and level foundation. We use a pile driver or diesel hammer to drive in the piles, and they are in there to stay and down to the absolute limit, so there is going to be no shifting around once they secure your foundation. Pilings are a great way to fix your sagging foundation because of this.
