When transporting ladders or building materials such as lumber in the trunk of your car, protect the edges of your truck by slipping a piece of 3/4″ foam pipe insulation on both the lid and bottom of your trunk. Secure the trunk with a bungee cord, and attach a red flag to the end of the material for safety.
