VZ won't start service for 7 days on a self install

Hoping someone can offer advice. I scheduled a self installation for a move online. I had fios st my old address, the new house is also wired for fios. VZ is telling me they can't start service at the new address until a tech visits the house.

I don't need a tech, I moved all of the equipment with me. I'm comfortable hooking it up myself. I only need VZ to flip the switch to provision service.

I've spoken with several customer service reps and managers and they tell me they can't do any thing for me without a technician on-site. The next available appointment is 9 days from now.

Cell service is not fantastic inside the house and I'm not comfortable leaving my wife and infant alone without a telephone. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
