Just got the stand, was expecting a long box. For information, the whole stand comes dissassembled and fits in the base box. Guessing, 18"x13" x 5". Was really surprised how compact it really is, once the support wheels are screwed in place, it still fits back in the base. To use, the two side supports just slip in place and screwed in with two bolts each. My worry when ordering it was where to put it. So for everyone else, it is compact, and nice. Pricey, but nice.
