Is there an alternative to bolting down a vertical air compressor?

I have a 80 gallon 2 stage air compressor. It is currently bolted down to the concrete garage floor. However, I will be moving into a house at the end of the month and the landlord does not want me drilling into the concrete floor. Is there an alternative to bolting down the compressor? Evidently bolting it down gives it structural support against the vibration. Any ideas?

    your vertical compressor is very top heavy, you bolt it down so it won’t tip over.

    get a half sheet of 3/4″ or 1″ ply wood (4′ x 4′ square) and bolt it to the plywood.

    use carriage bolts from under neath with the nits on top.

    that will keep it from tipping over.
