I have used the moneroaddress.org website to generate a wallet, sent some funds using shapeshift.io

I kept my spend and view key, my wallet address and mnemonic.

All this was done offline except for the trade

I later used xmr check site to see the transaction went through and my wallet address received those funds.

If I wish to see my wallet balance later and restore it, should I use simplewallet?

Do any precautions need to be taken?

Yes simplewallet is your best choice for restoring your wallet. Instructions to restore from mnemonic-seed can be found here. You can can also restore from keys but that is slightly more difficult.

Before restoration, the xmr tests site you mentioned is the easiest way to verify your balance (assuming your mnemonic seed and keys were kept safe and no outgoing transactions occurred) with the use of your view key to see the incoming transactions.

Do any precautions need to be taken?

You did the right thing by creating your wallet offline

Store your mnemonic-seed in a safe place offline. When restoring, ensure your system is free from keyloggers and you use a strong password.
