cardboard boxes as checked bags

Hello,

 

I understand that cardboard boxes are allowed as checked bags as long as they meet the size and weight requirements.  Is it okay to wrap them with plastic stretch wrap like the one people use for moving furniture?

 

Thanks.

You could try it, but remember TSA has the right to open any piece of checked baggage. So make sure they are sturdy boxes and secure them with more than just shrink wrap.
