Assume you mean machine being items such as a trolley jack or do you machines as in a 4 post lift?

Assuming you mean the later then you can lift the car with a trolley jack at the jacking points. There are 4 chunky rubber blocks on the sills one placed behind each front wheel and one forward of the rear wheels. Other than that use car ramps, they're cheap enough from Halfords and alike.

Get yourself a few scaffold planks and drive onto them, you can get the whole car length on them, only need a couple to lift the car enough to be able to get under to drain the oil, replace the exhaust, if thats all you want to do.
