For those of you with USAA ins who shipped a car from the mainland to the VI - did you change your USAA policy to the VI prior to shipping the car or once it arrived on island? 

We previously shipped a car and were told we needed to keep our stateside insurance until it arrived at the port.  We want to ship a second car and a different agent is telling us we need to go ahead and switch the policy to the VI policy prior to shipping.   Of course we will be calling back to confirm but I was interested in how anyone on here handled the switch?  Did you keep your US policy in force prior to shipping or did you purchase a VI policy while still in the US mainland?

We just shipped a Jeep back in May and have USAA Insurance.  We kept the stateside policy in effect until the Jeep was on St Croix.  We then changed it over to a VI policy.  We were told by USAA that our stateside insurance covered the vehicle through the transit process.

We moved here in December and have USAA. My car was damaged in transit but the transporter's insurance covered the repair. Either way you're in good shape. USAA is awesome. Wish they would insure homes here.
