L'Estange v Graucob [1934] 2 KB 394 Court of Appeal

The claimant purchased a cigarette vending machine for use in her cafe. She signed an order form which stated in small print 'Any express or implied, condition, statement of warranty, statutory or otherwise is expressly excluded'. The vending machine did not work and the claimant sought to reject it under the Sale of Goods Act for not being of merchantable quality.

Held:

In signing the order form she was bound by all the terms contained in the form irrespective of whether she had read the form or not. Consequently her claim was unsuccessful.
