Technical question here. I ordered a baby Monstera Deliciosa in the mail and it got here a few days ago. The notes said to wait to pot it for 2 weeks, which is what I usually do with plants I get in the mail. However, I'm moving in a week about 2.5 hours away where it's a little more humid. I was planning to wait to pot it until I get there, but should I wait even longer to let it get used to it's NEW new environment?

Follow the directions exactly to the TEE, because if the plant fails, you can get another one from the sender.

Waiting two weeks is not really long enough for a plant to acclimate to its new environment. Your plant is fine in that pot and probably will not be repotted for another several montha, if then.
