E-Crates are durable plastic containers that are stackable and feature an integrated dolly system. Using E-crates* provides 27%-40% labor savings due to time efficiencies. E-crates are up to 33% larger than most corrugated boxes. We are reducing the number of boxes required and decreasing environmental waste. Lile also has partnered with American Electronics Recycling to provide customers with options for recycling unused equipment. Lile International offers free used boxes to our interstate move customers. All moves are eligible to participate in our Electronics Recycling Program. We donate unwanted household goods through our partnership with Donor’s Resource. This local, woman-owned non-profit organization connects people with unwanted items with non-profit organizations that need them.
