Glad I could help. ^^
Yeah, transferring items is more of a pain. The only reason I have alts is to search the market wards in other cities for cheap crafting materials and crystals, but without a mail box it can become troublesome to get the items to my main.
When I do transfer items I try to do it during off hours of the day and in whatever city and market ward has the least traffic. If you want to take the risk, you can set the prices really low so you aren't taxed as much.
