Back in the 70's when late model dirt cars were running a circuit through the midwest they all loaded them the same way to preserve the suspension.
4 wood blocks about .5" taller than the frame to ground clearance at the furthest points out that were easy to get to under the frame. Jack the car up slightly, slip the block under then pull it down tight with a strap over the frame.
The car rides very stable and the suspension is all slightly relaxed but the unsprung weight still keeps the tires in contact with the trailer. Once you do it a few times it can be done very quickly and it does the least damage to the car in transit, saving wear on all the moving suspension parts and back then it reduced the flat spotting on the tires as well.
