    Side clearance is determined by the either the width of your shoulders or the diameter of your waist, whichever is larger... While you don't strictly need any side access, it is nice to have.

    I'd encourage you to get it shipped, but trucking rates seem to be up at the moment, unfortunately. But I do appreciate the replies, was starting to think nobody was interested in Sharps anymore.
