Checking Bags instead of Shipping Items?

My relocation package only reimburses checked bags when traveling to my final destination. The limit is $300. Can I check a packaged box on American Airlines?

They are moving all my stuff later on after the home sale but wanted to take a few things with me.

    Iโ€™ve seen people checking in boxes. They usually wrap em in scotch tape so they donโ€™t explode when stepped on

    Yes, I check cardboard boxes frequently, specifically on domestic AA flights.

    As long as it fits the size and weight limits, boxes are fine.

    Iโ€™ve seen a machine that wraps in plastic your cardboard box right before the check-in counters.

    Usually there is a line, so Iโ€™m guessing itโ€™s free?

    Yes, I've flown with a box once or twice. When I was in Asia cardboard boxes seemed more common than luggage. AA will probably make you sign a waiver saying that if the box gets wet and disintegrates it's not their fault.
