I try and put some information inside the box when I ship UPS or U.S. Postal. This way if the outside label is pulled off someone can open the box and still know where it goes.
I had a customer ship a box to Turkey. The box had a timing card with my phone number inside. The box was lost for 2 weeks and Fed Ex contacted me and I was able to put them in touch with the shipper.
I insure every shipment for the full value. I find shipping companies will look for high value shipments, and just pay the low value ones like your $100 box.

The rule "Expect the worst, and hope for the best" surely applies to shipping.
