For many years, the storage locker area was located right on Town Square. It was originally sponsored by Bekins, until Global Van Lines took over in May of 1963. It is mostly remembered for this wonderful old-fashioned van, "... a faithful restoration of a 1910 Ford truck". I can only assume that Bob Gurr was involved in the creation of this vehicle.
Global's headquarters was located just north of Disneyland; lucky collectors even have toy versions of this van - apparently I am not lucky!
