Are you getting ready to pack up your belongings and head to a new home or apartment? You’re not alone. Now through September 1 is peak real estate season and the busiest time of the year to move. Whether moving across the country or down the street, preparing a successful move requires forethought and planning. However, prospective movers with a Frontier Communications broadband connection are in luck, thanks to the many fantastic online tools and resources to help organize a successful move.

Will you move yourself or hire a team of professional movers? If cost is the driving point in your decision, check out Unpakt, an online site that allows you to compare exact prices of moving companies in your area, helping you track down the best price for your move. Unpakt guarantees the price you see will be the price you pay, barring any changes to your moving plan. Site users can read mover reviews and book online.

One of the most critical steps in preparing a successful move is to get (and stay) organized. Using boxes for packing is one of the best ways to keep your anxiety in check as you box up your belongings. You can order boxes online and have them conveniently shipped to your house from most shipping supply providers, such as U-Line and The Boxery. Or, go green for your move by purchasing recycled boxes and moving kits from the eco-friendly online shop  The site offers free shipping on any residential order and guarantees delivery in 1-2 business days — perfect if you are in a packing time-crunch.

During the moving process, you can turn to several different apps to help make your move less stressful. Moving Day (available in the iTunes store) features a fully integrated help guide to track what has been packed in each box, how many boxes you have, what has been damaged or is missing and easy-to-print labels for your boxes. Also available is MyMove (available for free on iTunes and Google Play), which connects users with reliable moving companies based on ratings and comments from other users. The app also provides information and licensing of companies and allows users to receive free estimates.

Using the wide array of online tools targeted for moving, you can unpack and relax in your new home in no time! And once you arrive in your new home, you can count on Frontier to provide you with the home communications and entertainment services you need.
