One thing not mentioned in that article, I think it's generally a good idea to put something between the wheels, especially if the rim sticks out further then the tire. I know it seems like common sense, but I have seen rims scratched from that. Like corregated cardboard or something.

Cardboard and then some carpet on top of the cardboard.... Don't forget under the bottom tire as well especially if it's an a concrete floor or cement...
