    Im struggling as to what relevant laws i should mention and identifying the legal issues of this case? I literally have no idea how to apply UCTA or any other acts to this case:

    1. Amac Ltd(“Amac”) hired a car from CarsRUs Ltd for use by its sales representative. The contract of hire exempted CarsRUs Ltd from liability for 'any losses or damage suffered by the hirers, whether caused by our company's neglect or fault or not'. It also provided that any liability for loss or damage was limited to £50. At the time of contracting, Amac made it clear that its property, including samples, products and electronic devices may be left in the car from time to time and CarsRUs Ltd expressed no objection. When Amac’s sales representative parked the car outside a client’s premises, the samples and company laptop left in the car were stolen. It was discovered that this was solely attributed to the negligence of one of CarsRUs Ltd’s staff, who failed to repair the defective back door of the car.

    Advise Amac Ltd as to the effectiveness of the clauses in the contract and whether they can recover damages for the loss of the samples and computer which are valued at £2000.

    Any help/pointers would be appreciated pleaseee
