The adjustable wire shelves are what I find works great, I use them for fans, but other collectors have used them for vacuums, Constellations included. They are the ones you used to see in restaurants but now used in stores for display shelving. Home Depot and Lowes have them as well.

They are pretty easy to put together and you can get different colors, chrome, black, etc. Also different heights, widths and depths.

Another nice thing, is the wire shelves don't collect much dust, and you can position them off the floor to clean underneath.

A tip on Constellation storage is to wrap the hose around the base, if you didn't know already. You could put the vacuum on the shelf and have wand and floor tool in front with the hose connected, like they sometimes do in stores.

Yeah, dozens of different makers produce those same shelves, and they are a good value for the money. They cost anywhere from $30-$80. They do not come with wheels typically, but you can buy big chunky caster wheels to put on the bottom and make them rollable.

You just lock the clips around each power where you want the shelf and tap the shelf down into place with a rubber mallet.

I think I got mine at Menards when they were on sale for $40 each and got a set of wheels for $18.
