Derogatory term for a contractor who has minimal skill, experience and equipment. Trunk slammer implies the contractor works out of their car trunk, with no office or licenses and they will likely be difficult to find if the client is not happy with the work.

Old southern term used to describe outsiders who came into the south to take advantage of those in need during the civil war, much like carpet baggers. The meaning is corrupt, of falsity, to initiate financial demise.

It's very important to point out that the newer IT definitions borrowed this word well after its origination. In the top cases of the usage I've seen on this site, the meaning is obscured, if not lost.
My Daddy got his shotgun out to take care of the trunk slammer salesmen. We don't need another carpet bagger around here.
