Z Rutherford Street. The Service Station serving Nelson City.

Written by Media Manager.

Z rutherford

Welcome to Z Rutherford - situated right in the heart of Nelson City on one of the easiest to get to intersections of the central business district. 
Conveniantly located on Rutherford Street opposite McDonalds in between Hardy Street and Selwyn Place, the entry and exit to this busy location is in between sets of lights so there is always ample opportunity to access and leave the Service Station even in heavy traffic. 


Z Bowater Motors Rutherford St - a part of our community.

The Bowater Motor Group has a long and proud history of community support, and this is part of our daily ethos at Z Bowater Motors Rutherford.
Through our work with Good in the Hood we have been able to support many local charities over the years, and plan on helping a whole lot more. 

Meet out team.

We pride ourselves of the courteous nature of all of our staff here at Z Rutherford and enjoy being on the forecourt as a complementary helping hand during our hours of Z’s Forecourt Concierge, helping you Zip through our local Z Bowater Rutherford, from 10am to 5pm daily.
