BK extension shipping possibilities

I'm trying to figure out how much it will cost me (the buyer) to ship a BK roll bar extension from the US to Montreal. The weight 10 lb 5 oz, is on their site but not the dimensions. Anybody who has shipped this item have an idea as to the package dimensions so that I can calculate the cost?

Ooooh, I have shipped several of them, you can wrap it in cardboard so you have a flat "box" just barely bigger than the bar. But shipping to Canada (with UPS anyway) is a %&&*%&% from what I hear, you get landed with all sort of customs fees that often are very $$$. Is there anyway for you to pick.it up in the US near the border?

I'll get the dimensions in the morning for you for your planning.

Just the act of crossing the border doubles the shipping cost.
