boxes used for lifting

Depends on the context, but "nostolaatikot" (lit. lift boxes) probably refers to boxes that are used in lifting other goods. Any other translation that carries this meaning would also work. As Erkki wrote, boxes to be lifted might also be accurate if the context is boxes that need to be lifted somewhere, but that seems less likely to me.

Example sentence(s):
  • Nostolaatikot tulee pitää puhtaana.
  • The boxes that are used for lifting must be kept clean.
