In the NGE characters were given respec kits. Once you level up to 90 you may have respecs left over. You were also given a second character slot shortly after the NGE. This exploit will not only let you trade no-trade items but also trade your level 90 respec kit to level up your alt instantly to level 90.
Make a new city, you will become mayor. Drop your no-trade items in the city hall. Have your alt voted mayor. Drop your respec kit, jedi robes, schematics, or any other no trade items in the hall. When your alt becomes the new mayor they can pick up these items. I just used this trick this week to level my alt from a low level crafter to a level 90 jedi and they started out with a master robe and an old republic LS schem.
