Moving for UK to Austria - Advice needed

Hey everyone,

Id be really grateful for any hints, tips and advice people could provide.

Im due to move from the UK to Austria to start work 01/Mar/2022 and wondered what things I would need that are obvious to Austrian residents but might be different to what Im used to in the UK.

The company I will be working for are preparing the RWR card, so that takes a lot of pressure off of me.

I know I need an Austrian bank account but I cant get one of those until I have an Austrian address right?

Ive been looking on for accommodation. Unfortunately for my first month in country, I will still be using a UK bank account (Natwest) would this be a problem for paying the deposit and first months rent generally?

Im also looking at taking my motorbike with me. Does anyone know what customs clearances etc I would need? I know I have to apply to register the bike in Austria within the first 90 days of living there, just not sure what paperwork and documentation etc I need for loading it into a van and taking it across the Eurotunnel.

These are the main concerns at the moment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
