Plumbing pipes can usually be manipulated so that they end up exactly where they are wanted. But waste pipes are less amenable often their slope and position are fairly fixed. So ensure that your proposed position for the new sink or basin enables the waste to be connected properly. You can gel 'kits' of waste fittings for sinks, basins and baths; a length of flexible waste pipe will often be useful as will lengths of hand-bendable copper pipe.
Finally, fit the unit into place, making sure that it is secure before connecting the water and waste pipes. A pedestal basin can be bedded into its pedestal with plumbing mastic; some basins have a special fixing for securing the basin and pedestal together. As usual, ensure that there is no strain on any of the pipes or connections - if there is, refit or rebend the pipes as necessary.
If you are replacing an old sink or basin with a new one, it is usually much easier to saw off the old supply and waste pipes and the screws securing the fitting rather than trying to undo them. Loosening old, corroded fittings is at best frustrating and often impossible. Cut the pipes where they are easy to get at both at this stage and later when the new basin is installed. When the old fitting is off the wall, the taps can usually be removed comparatively easily if you want to use them again.
