Default Leave it in the holder?

Would it be better when trying to cross BVG to PSA to just leave the card in the holder?

Yes, for a couple of reasons:
1) PSA won't crack it out unless it meets the minimum grade you asked for.
2) PSA may be able to detect trimming through the case.
3) PSA will also makes sure it meets MINSIZ before cracking.
4) Cracking BGS/BVG cases can damage the card.
5) Worst case is you get your card back in the BVG case or if PSA cracks it and then determines it is altered, I think they owe you something to cover your loss.

The reason people don't do this is that supposedly due to politics they are very disinclined to cross cards submitted in other companies' holders. So people take risks because there is a better chance of getting a raw card graded than a slabbed card crossed.

BGS is great for the modern, shiny card.

Years ago I sent in to PSA for crossover a BVG 1951 Mays. No go - came back trimmed. Then off to SGC, same result.

The only BVG to PSA cross I ever tried was a high-end HOF and I sent it in the BVG slab and it crossed straight over, BUT and this is the BIG but, it was from a hand-cut issue, so designed to be cut, and the degree of border still there plain to see and obviously checked out to my eye before I sent it...
