Your Ultimate Guide For Finding The Cheapest Skip Hire In Scarborough

  • 23rd February 2022

Hiring a skip can be a convenient and cost-effective way to deal with waste, whether you’re having a domestic clear out or working commercially. But how do you know what makes for the cheapest skip hire in the North and East Yorkshire area?

If you’re looking to rent a skip but want to know how to get the best deal, then read on! This is your ultimate guide to finding the cheapest skip hire in Scarborough.


The first thing that can affect how much you pay for skip hire is the size. Depending on your project and the space you have available, there are a number of skip sizes you can choose from. For example, at Stabler Waste Management, we offer everything from 3 yard domestic skips to 16-yard commercial options. We can even provide 40-yard hook loaders.

If you’re having a small domestic or garden clear out, a 3-yard skip should be ideal (these can hold 30-40 black bin bags). Smaller options are cheaper, so there’s no point ordering a huge skip if you know you won’t fill it. Equally, you don’t want to hire a skip that’s too small for your needs — overfilling can sometimes lead to extra charges.


Perhaps you and your neighbours are carrying out renovations at the same time. If so, you could consider a domestic skip share. Rather than each hiring a separate small skip, you could pool your resources and get a larger one. Not only will it save space, but skips also tend to cost less per cubic yard the bigger they are.


If you’re looking for the cheapest skip hire in Scarborough and have a driveway or accessible garden, then off-road skip hire could be your best bet. To park a skip on any public highway, including the road outside your property, you’ll need to get a skip permit or license and we offer this as part of our service. These can vary in price and are valid for two weeks — although you can apply for an extension.

However, if you can park the skip on your own land, you won’t need to get a permit. You can find out more about skip licenses and apply for a permit on the North Yorkshire County Council website, alternatively, we offer this as part of our service.


Another consideration when finding the most affordable skip hire is how quickly you need it onsite. Some skip companies may charge low prices but have delays in delivery. Alternatively, some may charge a vastly higher price for last-minute orders.

At Stabler, we pride ourselves on providing cost-effective solutions with fast delivery and unbeatable service. We even offer same-day delivery!


At Stabler Waste Management, we offer competitive rates and flexible services — including out-of-hours skip hire, which could benefit a range of projects. So if you require a skip outside of daily working hours, we can offer a range of different sized options in and around the Scarborough area. We also have enclosed lockable skips for your peace of mind.

Our family-run Stabler team members have years of expertise and can guide you on getting the most out of your skip hire. If you have any questions or wish to request an honest and affordable quote, feel free to contact us today.
