Bike box dimensions?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Bike box dimensions?

Hey guys, I recently got my road bike stolen so I was searching for a new bike, since I had homeowners insurance. I was looking at the Boardman slr 8.9, but the problem is that it is only sold online and shipped to the UK, while I live in the US. I plan to use a forwarder, forward2me. The problem lies in that I do not know the average size of a bike box for a 54 cm road bike, and how much the packaging would weight for tge estimate. Does anyone have any info on this?
Thanks in advanced

Why do you need to have that bike? Seems like there are dozens of similar spec bikes that you could buy in the US?

Please tell me about another bike with a carbon fiber frameset and fork with Shimano tiagra for 1000 USD?
And besides, it looks cool

Not bad. You can get a carbon bike with Ultegra for the same price in the US online:

https://bikeshopwarehouse.com/cgi-bin/BSW_STOR20.cgi?Action=Details&ProdID=1088

There are other options in that price range with 105 and Ultegra online in the US. But the Boardman does look cool. Also, I just got a bike with 4700 Tiagra and having previously owned 6800 Ultegra and 5800 105 I can't tell a difference between the three besides weight
