If the alt is on the same server, then you can mail the item (assuming the item is not "Bound"). Use a mailbox, located on any planet and scattered throughout (use your map if you're not sure where). Compose a new message with the recipient being your alt, and attach the item you want to send in the message.

If the equipment is "Bound", you can still pass it to that character's companions, so if it's useful to them, it's not completely wasted.

Note that mail between factions is not permitted; your Jedi can't send stuff to your Bounty Hunter and so on. (1.2 supposedly has a Legacy option to allow transfers between characters on the same server + account.)

although you can trade items even now between your characters on republic and empire sides, if you go to the Hutt Cartell Trade Network in the Nar Shaddaa Lower Promenade, you can put it there to sell it and use your character on the other faction to buy it.

Mind you, if you want to transfer funds back and forth via said trade network, prepare to lose a fair bit in the GTN's fee.
