The best thing would be to rent a storage unit toss some mothballs on the floor, back the car in, jack it up and put it on stands. Open the hood and disconnect the battery. Leave the hood open and put a few mothballs there as well.
If you have to store it outside. If on concrete or pavement do pretty much the same thing. Make sure it is not parked near a roof that sheds snow to keep the roof from being crushed.
The reason for the stands and moth balls in both cases are mice. A parked vehicle is a nice warm home for them. They were not a big deal when cars were not rolling computers but now they love to chew wiring and hoses and that does not work out well for the vehicle.
