Broken frames

Hello! I am beginning my third season as a beekeeper, and I am at a loss of what to do. I got a second hive last April, I personally assembled the hive and frames with nails. The bees are flourishing, and made it through winter. However, I realized at the end of last summer, that my construction skills were not up to par, and the frames are all broken, now that they are heavy with the weight of the comb/brood/honey. The vast majority of frames are broken, to the point that I cannot even pull out most of the frames to do normal inspections. Some are broken at the top joint, some broken at the bottom joint. I want to move these bees into a new box with new frames, but I’m not sure how to do so. Any help in this situation would be much appreciated.
