Default Setting up a new lathe

Hi fellas,
I have ordered a new 300 x 923( 12" x 36") bench top lathe which will come with a stand. I assume that the stand will need to be bolted to the floor and the lathe to the stand. The whole unit weighs in around 420 kgs ( 924LBS)

I also am aware that one needs to check that the bed ways are horizontal in both planes in order to avoid twisting of the bed ways.

Are the any other factors that I should take into account and take action on. Your advice is very welcome.
