The most vulnerable seal is the compressor shaft seal. Generally, before a new compressor is installed, the compressor is set upright so that it's resting on the pulley face end of the unit so that the front seal gets lubrication.

So all you need to do is set your car on it's right side for 24 hrs before starting it up.

If that's not practical, just turn it on and give it a go.
