Have you thought of calling a neighbor or friend to help you? Or maybe hiring a cheap handiman from craigslist? The problem with unboxing it is that there is also some assembly required. In your condition, even if you were able to ubox it, you would still need to be able to use tools, crouch/bend, and tighten bolts and nuts. That would be a chore in itself. Do you know of anyone that can come help you? Or if you want to hire someone, I’m sure I can get you some numbers to call if you give me your zip code.
